Kooper's Tavern was originated in 1997 when Patrick and Katie Russell renamed the former Thames Street Tavern after their beloved yellow lab, Kooper. In 2009, Kooper's Chowhound Burger Wagon hit the streets as Baltimore’s first gourmet food truck. Patrick Russell recently expanded Kooper’s restaurants in late August 2012 and opened Kooper’s North at The Roundwood Shopping center located on West Padonia Road in Lutherville-Timonium, Maryland.
Kooper’s Jacksonville will continue to use our local growers, bakers, butchers, and seafood purveyors. Along with great quality food and beverage, Kooper's Jacksonville will offer a warm atmosphere for the community.
“I look forward to opening our doors to the neighborhood. I have already received many enthusiastic and welcoming messages from this great community” said Patrick Russell. “I believe the outstanding service provided by my staff and the diversity of our menu will please everyone”
The Baltimore County town, well-known for its appearance in Baltimore native John Waters’ movie Pink Flamingos, will welcome Kooper’s new venture. The restaurant is scheduled to open in early June 2014 after an estimated three-month renovation period that will include the construction of an outdoor bluestone patio.
