Week in Reviews

2009_08_fivereviewed.jpgThe CoCo Times visits the six-month-old Five, where it would appear that Scott Howard is starting to hit his stride. The review is a big rave, showering the Berkeley hotel restaurant with a lofty 3.5 stars and an explosion of pot roast praise: "I've been waiting 18 months for a single bite of restaurant food to delight me as much as the simple avocado toast I ate at Camino in 2008. I found a close competitor in Howard's short ribs 'pot roast.' Although short ribs are overplayed right now, these were the best I've had ... The pot roast alone is worth the drive from other parts of the Bay Area." [CCT]
