Five Restaurant Review

: Five’s chef/proprietor Anthony Devoti understands that a feast for the senses can be a bit subjective. Which makes his menu a fun read --- there are trends (pig tails ragoût over pasta), dares (roasted beef head cake with pickled beets), cravings (fries with gravy, better known in Canada as poutine) and skills (house-made charcuterie) on display. If it’s the almost-mythical burger you seek, it’s only available Friday and Saturday nights from 10 p.m. to midnight on the bar menu. All dishes on the oft-changing dinner and tasting menus feature quality ingredients, simply prepared. The former, at three-courses, is a price-conscious way to enjoy dishes like sous vide pork belly and cream puffs with whipped cream, apple jam and roasted apple ice cream. If price is no object, explore the vintages on the cellar list.
