Cooper's, a longtime San Antonio meat market, has opened next to Cox Farms, an organic market in Sylvan Thirty in West Dallas. But this isn't just a meat shop — it's also a steakhouse and bar.

Owners Michael Johnson and Victoria Berezina brought in chef Kenny Mills (Capital Grille, Sullivan's Steakhouse) to run the 50-seat steakhouse, which serves prepared take-home dishes and dinner and drinks daily. Selena Dodge (Bolsa, Bouchon 1314) is running the beer and wine program.

"While their specialty is high-quality beef, poultry, fish and other meats, Cooper’s carries a variety of appetizers, sides, casseroles, wine and beer, as well as popular YETI coolers and Game Guard gear," according to a press release.

The retailer and restaurant is in a 3,100-square-foot "rustic and modern" space where customers can watch their meat cut to order. And as grocery delivery becomes increasingly popular in Dallas, the market delivers to West Dallas, Oak Cliff, Uptown, Highland Park, University Park and Lakewood.

Cooper's Meat Market, 778 Fort Worth Ave. Retail open 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 10 a.m. to 7 p.m Sunday. Bar and restaurant open 4-9 p.m. Monday through Wednesday, 4-10 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday.
