Good news for fans of Southern cooking: Winter Park’s popular the Coop is expanding their menu with five new dishes and adding one more day a week on which to enjoy them. Beginning Sunday, Jan. 19, the restaurant will begin serving food seven days a week for the first time, with regular Sunday hours 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. They recently introduced five new dishes, which will also be included on the first Sunday.
The Coop, an offshoot of John Rivers’ 4 Rivers Smokehouse empire, has occasionally opened on Sundays for charities before, such as on Sept. 8, 2019, when the restaurant donated all proceeds to help victims of Hurricane Dorian in the Bahamas. 4 Rivers Smokehouses will continue to remain closed on Sundays.
