Chicken and waffles from Pear

Pear opens Dec. 11, 2012 in Napa, a Southern-inspired restaurant that replaces Tyler Florence’s short-lived riverfront bistro at 720 Main Street.

Open daily for lunch and dinner, the restaurant will feature a single menu with classics like macaroni and cheese, shrimp and grits, rotisserie chicken, collard greens, chicken and dumplings and chicken and waffles with pear-bourbon maple syrup.

Chef-owner Rodney Worth owns several restaurants in the East Bay including The Peasant and the Pear, The Prickly Pear Cantina and Ferrari’s Cucina Italiana.
