The Coop has been anxiously awaited since it's announcement, and the day is finally here for Central Floridians to experience how John Rivers does fried chicken! The "Southern Cowboy" chef of 4Rivers fame is expanding with his second concept with the new restaurant located in Winter Park at Morse Boulevard and Pennsylvania Ave, the former home of O'Boys Barbecue. Made from scratch daily comfort classics accompany an in-house bakery serving artisanal "sweetie pies." The theme is down home Southern hospitality and is a nod to Rivers' heritage and family ties.
I had the pleasure of sampling The Coop's fried chicken sandwich back at Cows n' Cabs in Oct. 2013, and I can not wait to get another!
