Coppins Restaurant and Bar is located in Hotel Covington which is a recently remodeled hotel in the wedding district of Covington. It’s a very pretty hotel – they have a beautiful open bar area and a little shop in the front of the store as well. I got distracted by pink furry things in the shop!
The real star of Coppins is the sunroom area – it is so bright and lovely! There’s also a huge patio right outside that you could definitely figure is very busy during wedding season! The decor really accentuates the scale of the room –
I got the Shrimp Etouffee (which Maria called “eh-too-foo-fee” – bhahahaha). Again – didn’t love. The sauce/broth had good flavor but the shrimp was super small and seemed like the frozen kind you get in a bag. The worst part though – the rice wasn’t cooked all the way. Like – it crunched.
For the Third Course – we could choose from Cafe Au Lait Cheesecake, Beignets or Classic Bread Pudding. I was ready to choose the bread pudding but our server recommended the Beignets. I loved them in NOLA on my recent trip and went for it. Actually – all 3 of us got them!
These were delicious and perfect! Light, pillowy donuts under a foot of powdered sugar.
What Should You Get? Well – I didn’t love it – but that said – I’ve heard great things about their brunch and specifically their biscuits so I would definitely give Coppins another try. And those Beignets were wonderful! Restaurant Week is always about getting out and trying things and that’s half the fun! Our favorite for the week was Court Street Lobster! Don’t miss them!
