We have been fans since Barry Edelman first opened this always amazing restaurant. It is near impossible to be on the game without some failures and I assume there have been some people who have not always had the near perfect experiences we encounter regularly. But maybe not. I know one of the main reasons this place succeeds is the owner/chef role as opposed to an owner who hires a chef. Food is wonderful without pretension, flavors vary wildly from dish to dish exhibiting a knowledge of spices and combinations. The menu changes seasonally with so many things house made. The chicken liver pâté appetizer and a side of sautéed mixed greens with mushrooms made for a light and delightful meal last night. But anything you order will be bite for bite pleasurable.
Whether one dines simply with an appetizer (or several) or the more traditional route of appetizer, entree and dessert dinner will be wonderful. The staff is another reason for success. Almost everyone returned after the year of rebuilding after the devastating fire a few years back. They feel 5CK is a family. That speaks so well of Barry. Decor is simple, modern, and bright. The bar is marble but with a warming element so touching it is a pleasant experience . Small detail but so nice.
Go often and enjoy but remember to make a reservation as they are deservedly crazy busy.
