Pursuit of the Perfect Pairing


1962 N. Halsted St. Chicago, IL 60614

773.935.1000

Open for dinner at 5pm Tuesday through Sunday. Closed Monday.

For too long, you've been convinced that the optimal meal was achieved with meat and potatoes (although we are pretty good at that).

Sure, a decent pairing occurs when different ingredients play nice. But more importantly, when both the food and drink taste better together than they do apart. Think milk and cookies, on a multi-course scale.

Serving friends and neighbors the perfect pairing is our ongoing mission.

JOIN US ON THE PURSUIT.

Private Dining


The private dining space at Coppervine is warm and inviting, and is a true private event space.  

Designed by Karen Herold of Studio K Creative, the second level space (accessible by stairway or elevator) has a dedicated kitchen and bar, and offers both dining and lounge areas. We can accommodate as few as ten guests for a semi-private function, up to 75 guests in a reception setting and up to 50 for a seated luncheon or dinner. Large windows let in natural light, and the space is fully A/V compatible for business or personal presentations.

Our team at Coppervine can work with you to create a special menu, be it for a holiday party, corporate event, rehearsal dinner, bridal shower, birthday party or wine dinner; sample menus are available here.  We pride ourselves on our pairing capabilities and can offer wine and/or beer pairing classes, mixology classes and more if you’d like to add a little something special to your next event.

For details about booking Coppervine for your private event please contact our Private Events Team at 773.935.1000 or submit an inquiry.

Pairing of the Minds

Pairing of the Minds


Chip Barnes (left)

Executive Chef

Chip Barnes began his Chicago culinary career in 2010, accepting a garde manger position at the edge-pushing Moto. Knowing the importance of understanding all facets of the business, he spent the next three years moving between back- and front- of house positions at the restaurant, working up to Executive Sous Chef and Assistant General Manager, respectively. Barnes also added wine knowledge to his culinary palette, acquiring his Court of Masters Sommelier Level One certification while there. After leaving Moto, Barnes accepted the Sous Chef position at neighborhood favorite Bad Apple, and it was there he met Don Sritong. 

In summer 2014, Barnes joined the Coppervine team, where his knowledge of both food and wine is a perfect fit for the pairing focused concept. Barnes describes his style as modern rustic, one that values organization and balances precision with playfulness. Barnes lives in the Andersonville neighborhood of Chicago.

Andrew Embry (middle)

Head Bartender

A performer at heart, Andrew Embry combines his two passions – for acting and hospitality – behind the bar at Coppervine. Heading up the beverage program calls not only for an extensive knowledge of cocktails, beer and wine, but the understanding of the intricacies of finding that perfect pairing, and being able to share that information effectively with the guest.

After obtaining his B.F.A., Embry supplemented his income by working behind some of Chicago’s most colorful bars. Over time, he began experimenting with ingredients and flavor combinations, seeing how different ingredients complement and contrast one another. Aware of Coppervine’s ambitious pairing program, Embry relished the chance to become part of the beverage team. He strongly believes that substance and style, patience and purpose are all integral elements of collaborative art – be it performing on stage or behind the bar. 

 

 

Don Sritong (right)

Owner & Sommelier

Born in San Francisco, Don Sritong grew up around food and drink. His parents owned a restaurant, and at home, the family culture revolved around the kitchen so it’s no surprise he pursued a career in hospitality. While attending UC Davis, Sritong waited tables at Enotria, a restaurant with a strong emphasis on pairing food and wine. It was there that the proverbial light bulb went off - the chef presented a particular pairing and when Sritong tasted it, he got it - what started as a functional experience had blossomed into a passion.

If you were to ask Sritong, he would tell you he is “living the dream, marrying my two passions of food and drink”. Sritong is currently enrolled in the Level IV Diploma program of the WSET (Wine and Spirits Education Trust), a specialist qualification and their highest qualification level.
