Description of Restaurant:

This was a dream and venture many years ago of Julia Child. I remember when I first met Julia, she told me ‘bout this venture and asked me to join. She heard me imitate her on Regis and Kelly and told me I was funny.

Robert Mondavi, an ally of Julia’s, joined in the establishment of COPIA whose mission is to explore, celebrate and share the many pleasures and benefits of wine, its relationship to food, and its significance to our culture!

The restaurant’s menu is a tribute to Julia Child’s original recipes, interpreted by its executive chef.
