Cooper’s Hawk restaurant comes to Cornerstone of Centerville

October 3, 2018 by  

The Cornerstone of Centerville development has announced that its newest tenant will be an upscale wine-focused restaurant, part of the Cooper’s Hawk chain.

The plan was given the go ahead by the Centerville Planning Commission, with the restaurant aiming to seat 281 people in a 11, 750 square-foot building. Cooper’s Hawk will be built on Cornerstone North Boulevard. Spanning just over two acres, it will anchor the new ‘Cornerstone Village’ expansion of the retail center.

Describing itself as an “upscale casual restaurant”, Cooper’s Hawk features an extensive wine list, all of which are produced by the company itself. These wines can be paired with dishes such as short-rib risotto, Southern-grilled shrimp and polenta, and gnocchi carbonara. In addition to its restaurants, Cooper’s Hawk runs a “wine of the month” subscription club. The chain was founded by Tim McEnery in 2005, with its first location in Florida

The Centerville location is part of a Cooper’s Hawk expansion into Ohio, alongside three already-opened restaurants in Butler County, Cincinnati, and Columbus, as well as a planned location in Cleveland. Restaurant chains moving into new areas often use flyer printing, radio spots, poster printing, and other forms of advertising to get the word out. Other restaurants who will open their first Dayton locations at Cornerstone include Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen, Bagger Dave’s Burger Tavern, and CoreLife Eatery.
