THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Five Points Restaurant Review

: A neighborhood hit, Five Points is filled each night with chefs, food pros and locals hanging around the busy bar enjoying chickpea snacks or waiting for a table in the dining room. Although the feng shui-inspired room with a small elevated stream running through it may seem serene, nights here are noisy. As with many restaurants these days, the generous first courses seem to hold more interest than the mains. We give a yes to all of the high-quality seasonal salads. For your main dish, try the wood oven-roasted pizzettes accompanied by Yukon gold potatoes and truffle oil or lamb chops served with risotto cakes. But everyone in New York knows that Five Points is all about one particular meal: brunch. We recommend the bacon ‘n’ eggs mac ‘n’ cheese and the lemon ricotta pancakes.
