About Lars Kopperud
MAFIAoZA's - Co-owner & General Manager A prominent figure on "The Nashville Scene," Lars Kopperud has made a resounding splash on the city's food and wine map, and in the process, has played a leading role in redefining the scope of authentic Italian offerings available to Nashville residents. In June of 2003, Kopperud, along with business partner Michael Dolan, successfully launched MAFIAoZA's in the heart of the city's vibrant 12South neighborhood. A native of Palmer, Alaska, Kopperud first moved to Nashville on both academic and soccer scholarships, and soon decided to make Tennessee his adopted home state. Prior to opening MAFIAoZA's, Kopperud had added several high-profile restaurant jobs to his portfolio, including positions at Nashville favorites Mere Bulle's and The Villager Tavern. In addition to his culinary projects, Kopperud plays an active role in several charity and community outreach organizations in Tennessee. His active event participation has included the annual "Culinary Caper" fundraiser, with proceeds benefiting Hospice of Murfreesboro, and the March of Dimes annual "Signature Chefs" event, which Kopperud recently co-chaired. Kopperud has a book in the works, as well. Co-written with Gannett News Service columnist Barb Ford, and his business partner Lars Kopperud, Never Dine Alone Again will offer advice to young professionals on ways to entertain with panache, and how to eat healthily and well.
