Where We’re Eating: Jake’s and Cooper’s Wine Bar


First there was stuffy Jake’s, where I once dropped more than $100 on a mediocre brunch for two. Then owner Bruce Cooper opened adjacent (and more casual) wine-and-pizza spot Cooper’s, in 2008. Just recently he repainted, redesigned, and combined the two into one restaurant with one menu and one chill vibe, which is the best thing he could p­ossibly have done. You’ll enjoy the high-value wine list, the polenta gn­occhi, and the brick-oven-roasted branzino at what is now one of Manayunk’s best bets.

    Snooze…this place is a joke! 1997 called and wants their menu back! Somebody must’ve given Vic another free meal.

    • DaMainyUnkLimeHasNoGoodFood

      My bad. Italicizing the purveyor must make it current and trendy. I take it back. This is farm-to-table at its finest! You’re really on to something Vic! Just add some port drizzle to that shit yo! Yawnnnnnn….
