Five Bistro started out in the Grove but moved to The Hill a couple of years ago, where its reputation as one of the most creative and innovative local eateries has been solidified. The name of the restaurant comes from the five senses Chef Antony Devoti and his staff strive to stimulate with their fare. Devoti is a well-known adherent of the doctrine of nose-to-tail cooking, and he uses most every part of the animal in his dishes. He's also a champion of local producers and his creations are full of ingredients from area farms and purveyors. Five also has an impressive garden behind the building that yields many vegetables and herbs for the kitchen, and the staff is happy to give guests a tour of the rows.

In 2011, Mike Randolph of Good Pie fame decided to open up a brunch place. The result: Half & Half, which continues to draw throngs of a.m. diners. He then decided to up the ante by opening a fine-dining concept in the same space for the evening crowd. This eatery, Medianoche, focused on Mexican fare, but for whatever reason failed to take off. Last year, it was replaced by Little Country Gentleman, and we have a feeling the current concept will be around longer—much longer.
