Five Bistro, located at 5100 Daggett Ave. on The Hill, will soon be rebranding. The restaurant will close after service on Saturday, March 24, and reopen on Wednesday, April 5, as J. Devoti Trattoria – named in honor of chef-owner Anthony Devoti’s father, grandfather and great-grandfather.

“Part of the driving force is that I have two kids,” Devoti said of the coming changes, which include the addition of more kid-friendly fare and a dedicated kids’ menu. “And I just wanted to do something different. We’ve been doing Five for 11 years. We want to keep the farm-to-table aspect and open it up a little bit to more of a family atmosphere. We’re going to call it farm-to-table Italian.”

The overall concept of the cuisine won’t change, he said, and seasonal menus focused on local vegetables, heritage breed meats and sustainable seafood will still be the norm.

“People can come in and have a Five Bistro-quality dinner, but if they have their little ones with them, they could have pizza or pasta,” he said.

The kitchen at J. Devoti’s will be open Wednesday and Thursday from 4 to 9 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 4 to 10 p.m. A daily happy hour from 4 to 5:30 p.m. will feature small plate options, pizza by the slice, charcuterie and wine specials. There will also be a rotating Family Meal special from 4 to 8 p.m. on the first Sunday of each month, served family style.
