Au Revoir, Syrah 

Josh Silvers to close Petite Syrah in Santa Rosa

After undergoing a personal transformation of his own, chef Josh Silvers this fall will close his downtown Santa Rosa restaurant, Petite Syrah, and open a new restaurant in its spot. "I'm a different person than I was 13 and a half years ago," says Silvers. Having a child seven years ago and losing 40 pounds with a personal trainer changed his perspective. "I want to be able to go out to dinner and eat healthy," he says.

The new restaurant will offer a more healthful menu, though not strictly. "We will have a fried chicken night once a week," says Silvers. The restaurant will also be open for breakfast, lunch and dinner as opposed to dinner only. The menu will also offer gluten-free and whole-wheat options. "It's not that I have to do this," says Silvers. "I want to do this."

Silvers adds he is taking a cue from Jackson's Bar and Oven, his more casual, comfort-food-oriented restaurant down the street. "It will be easier on everything," he says, "the wallet included." Silvers says the name and phone number will change in early September, and should only require closing the space for a few days.—Nicolas Grizzle
