As I posted yesterday, Five (Web site) is moving from 4317 Manchester Avenue to the former Pizzeria della Piazza location at 5100 Daggett Avenue on the Hill. The final dinner service at Five's original location is tomorrow.

I had a chance yesterday to speak with owner and chef Anthony Devoti about the move. He told me the end of the restaurant's current lease was the impetus for the move: "We wanted to buy our own building. [Our landlord] wasn't able to sell us this building. But we went and found [the new] building on the Hill."

Devoti says he's "pumped" about the new location. "It's a gut rehab job. We ripped everything out. The idea is to be the same restaurant as the original Five. We're keeping the same color scheme. We'll be bringing all of our paintings over. We have beautiful new lights."

In addition, the new restaurant will have a patio and artwork from artist Josephine Romo. Five will have its grand re-opening beginning Thursday, June 11.
