The last few months have probably had you cooking at home more than ever, but chances are you aren’t making dishes that come close to comparing to https://www.copperwoodtavern.com/" rel="noopener noreferrer" target="_blank">Copperwood Tavern’s modern American fare. The restaurant is known for farm to table cooking, with locally sourced proteins and fresh, seasonal accompaniments. Try the grass fed, dry-aged ribeye with burgundy sauce and hand churned butter, or brined Berkshire pork chop with peach chutney. Those are two dishes that you likely haven’t had since well before the COVID-19 closures. Copperwood Tavern is also known for fresh oysters, and for craft cocktails that taste oh-so-good alongside shareable sides at the bar.
If you’re ready to get back to in person dining, Copperwood Tavern should be your first stop. The interior is warm and rustic, and just the kind of place that feels homey for a weeknight meal while still being classy enough for a special occasion. The Arlington location is located on Campbell Avenue in the Village of Shirlington shopping mall. Make a reservation directly on the website.
