MERRILLVILLE — Many visitors come to Cooper's Hawk for the wine and entrees, but the appetizer menu has several standout dishes that shouldn't be missed.
Among the favorites are the "Award-winning" Asian Pork Belly Tostadas, Crispy Crab Beignets and the Mexican Drunken Shrimp. But a newer app might catch your eye: the Crispy Brussels Sprouts. These are not your momma's brussels sprouts. The hot, crunchy veggies are served with cashews, mint, sweet Thai chili and a sesame-srirachi aioli so tasty you might want to drink it.
Be warned, though, this pre-meal treat is filling. A group of three or four people easily could share it as an appetizer.
The app is on the menu for $8.99 at Cooper's Hawk, 2120 Southlake Mall, Suite 500. For more information, visit coopershawkwinery.com or call 219.795.9463.
