This our weekly look back at some of our recommended dining experiences:
With a farmhouse-meets-glam setting, lively ambiance and delicious grub, The Cooper is decidedly (still) the new hot spot on PGA Boulevard’s dining corridor in Palm Beach Gardens.
The concept is stylized – and beautifully so. But there’s more than “farm-to-table” concept going on here. The menu is friendly to all palates, appetites and food preferences, as The Cooper — which serves lunch, dinner and a popular Sunday brunch — offers snacks, small plates and heftier portions.
Thanks to The Cooper’s executive chef, Adam Brown, the dishes are not simply a composition of ingredients, but a celebration of them. A seasonal veggie plate takes on a sumptuous dimension as the “Farmer’s Market Vegetable Palette.” Brown’s flavor-forward style shines through in the simplest of condiments, such as the bright and herby salsa verde that accompanies The Cooper’s steaks.
