Pearl in the Grove, the award-winning farm-to-table restaurant in Dade City, closed on Oct. 1 for what co-owner Curtis Beebe hopes is just a few-week hiatus, along with his other restaurants, Local Public House & Provisions in San Antonio and Rebecca's at City Market in Dade City, a more recent acquisition. According to Beebe, the objective is to "rebuild the kitchen team from the ground up," as well as to do some maintenance and make improvements in the dining room at Pearl, which he opened with wife Rebecca in 2010. Beebe said Pearl in the Grove continues to be a healthy part of the business but that staffing changes have prompted the temporary closures. At this time, the Seven Courses of Kevin Bacon dinner (Kevin Bacon was the name of the restaurant's pig) scheduled for Oct. 20 at Pearl will continue as scheduled.
