  • Mason Jar Tavern now open in Holly Springs

    Posted by Greg Cox on January 29, 2015

    Jonathan and Maggie Pierce have opened The Mason Jar Tavern in the former D’Andrea’s space in the Holly Springs Towne Center retail complex. The couple describe their family-friendly neighborhood pub as “a modern take on Southern hospitality."

    Jonathan Pierce is a restaurant veteran who worked his way up from bussing tables as a teenager to, more recently, manager at Ruckus in Cary. Pierce hired chef Chris Tucker, a fellow Ruckus alum, to give edible substance to the “modern take” part of the concept.

    Tucker has responded with a menu that includes pan-seared NC trout over parmesan risotto, chicken and waffles with bourbon-infused maple syrup, and shrimp and pimento cheese grits with country ham. The chef delivers the family-friendly pub goods, too, from entree salads to sandwiches to burgers made with a blend of ground chuck and short rib.
