A popular Burr Ridge restaurant is looking to expand.

Cooper’s Hawk Winery and Restaurant plans to add more than 2,700 square feet of space by taking over two existing storefronts in Burr Ridge Village Center and expanding its operations.

The casual upscale wine and dine restaurant is looking to snag the existing storefronts of Yankee Candle and Sunglass Hut to add 129 bar and dining seats. When the addition is complete, the restaurant would go from 9,486 square feet of space to 12,246 square feet.

The restaurant at 510 Village Center Drive has been at the location since entering the village in 2007. At the time, it was the second location for the restaurant chain.
