Chef Roberto Copa Matos and wife Elizabeth Turnbull, owners of the former Old Havana, will bring us COPA in 2018. "Through COPA, Roberto and Elizabeth will lead their guests on a journey across oceans and through time to a world where the heady scent of cinnamon, cloves, and pork pervades miniature sausages; where the summer harvest of cucumber, squash, and okra are suspended in a peach-yogurt dressing; where quail and guinea offer the ultimate comfort food on a bed of yellow saffron rice. The bar will draw from the rich canvas of Latin America, mixing locally sourced ingredients with exotic fruits and liquors, marrying rosemary, grapefruit, and gin; pisco and lavender; North Carolina rum and clementine." Many of Old Havana's best dishes and qualities will be present at COPA: the signature slow-roasted pork, mojo sauce, and guests’ favorite sandwiches and plates. COPA will be located in the historic Baldwin Lofts at 107 W. Main Street. Coming early 2018.
