A new "Southern bistro" called The Pear opens today in the Napa Riverfront space formerly occupied by Tyler Florence's Rotisserie & Wine. It's a new venture by Danville restaurateur Rodney Worth (The Peasant & the Pear, Prickly Pear Cantina), and as Eater reports, he'll be picking up right where Florence left off, serving Southern and New Orleans staples like hush puppies, shrimp and grits, and gumbo, and making use of the already installed rotisserie for chickens. They just had a grand opening party on Saturday night, and today is the official opening day. And they're open seven days a week, for lunch, brunch, and dinner. [Facebook via Eater]
