Cooper’s Hawk Winery And Restaurant in Virginia Beach!

Earlier this week I went with my in-laws to this nice winery and restaurant called Cooper’s Hawk in Virginia Beach, VA.

When you first walk in, they have the wine tasting area where you can try a variety of wines. I chose to try sweet wines because I prefer sweet over dry wines.

My favorite wines were the Sparkling Moscato, Gewurztrainer, White Sangria, and Cranberry.

After wine tasting, we sat down to eat dinner. We had a few appetizers which consisted of the Classic Tomato Bruschetta and Chicken Potstickers! So yummy!

For my entree, I had Dana’s Parmesan Crusted Chicken with Betty’s Potatoes and Green Beans. The chicken was so crispy and flavorful and I loved the potatoes, they were cheesy and had a hash brown consistency.

I’m already planning my next trip back to this cool spot haha!

Have you been wine tasting? Do you prefer dry or sweet wines?

Il Giardino Ristorante in VA Beach!

My husband and I decided to go to VA Beach for our anniversary. We normally go to the Poconos or somewhere in the tri state area but we wanted to go somewhere different this time around. It’s about 10 degrees warmer than NYC so I’ll take it! Haha!

On our first day here we went to this nice Italian restaurant near the boardwalk called Il Giardino Ristorante.

We had Vongole Casino for an appetizer which is baked clams with herbs, peppers, onion, and bacon.

For my entree, I ordered Pollo Alla Sorrentina which was made with chicken, spinach, zucchini, prosciutto, tomato sauce, mozzarella, and white wine.

The food was delicious and I would recommend this restaurant for anyone visiting the VA Beach area!
