Modern American fare and rustic ambiance come together for a warm dining experience at Copperwood Tavern. The interior of the restaurant is welcoming and comfortable, with lots of wood and industrial finishes.
The menu focuses on locally sourced proteins, including rare game meats, alongside fresh, seasonal accompaniments. Enjoy rabbit or venison with vegetables, or more traditional cuts of beef like the filet with peppercorn sauce. Lighter options include pan seared fish or lobster lettuce wraps, along with entrée-worthy salads. The craft cocktails are also enough to warrant a visit, especially if you post up at the bar with a cool drink in one hand, and an order of oysters or shareable sides near the other. The weekend brings Copperwood Tavern’s near-famous brunch, with blueberry ricotta pancakes or fried green tomato Benedict topped with a perfectly poached egg.
It’s been a long couple of months, and Copperwood Tavern is ready to welcome back hungry patrons for a well-deserved meal. Find the Arlington location on Campbell Avenue in the Village of Shirlington shopping mall.
