Bordeaux. Napa. Orland Park? Will the south 'burbs join the ranks of the world's famed winemaking regions? Probably not. But this 13,000-square-foot restaurant/winery--yep, winery--offer 30 varieties of their own private-label vino, a lineup including cabernet sauvignon to gewurztraminer to fruit-flavored wines. Cooper's Hawk imports the majority of its grapes from California, but augments them with Michigan, Oregon and Illinois product. You'll be able to see the production area to get a glimpse of the fermentation process, or sip a selection in the tasting room. The 300-seat restaurant goes for an "upscale casual" menu of steak, seafood, pasta and sandwiches, with entrees priced $10.99 to $24.99.
