☞ EAT: Did 5 & Diamond Close Recently?
Walking by 5 & Diamond on recent nights, folks might assume that the restaurant has shuttered its doors since it has been locked up in the past week. The restaurant just north of 112th Street on FDB/8th Avenue was Harlem's first entry into the celebrity chef arena and now it seems that major changes are at hand. The sign posted on window states that the restaurant is currently under renovations and will be open again on August 27th (today). This might make better sense when reading the past EATER article on how founding chef Ryan Skeen is slowly fazing out of his partnership with the establishment: LINK. New York magazine reports that new chef David Santos has been introducing his own stamp to the restaurant recently and will be having a special tasting menu set up for 35 guest this coming Monday, August 30th, at $85 per person : LINK. Call for reservations to see what the new 5 & Diamond is all about: 646-684-4662. UPDATE: Yesterday, New York magazine just revealed David Santos is leaving 5 & Diamond: LINK
