Mariano Rivera opens new restaurant in New Rochelle

Yesterday was a good day for Yankees star Mariano Rivera.

Not only did the Bronx Bombers beat the Texas Rangers,but the closer had the grand opening of his new restaurant "The Clubhouse Grill" in New Rochelle.

The restaurant was once a steakhouse, but now it's Yankee heaven with some of the best sports memorabilia around.

Items include a piece of one of the original foul poles, real stadium seats, "A Holy Cow" autographed by the team and former players, a Yankee turnstile and its own version of Monument Park.

Mariano wasn't able to be there for the reopening of his restaurant because he's on his way to Chicago to help the Yanks beat the Cubs.
