5 & Diamond's New Chef Is David Martinez

Martinez has already revamped the menu, which when it premieres tonight will feature such dishes as sea scallops with watermelon, green curry broth, and shrimp crisp; Berkshire pork tenderloin with Applewood smoked bacon, sweet corn, wild mushrooms, and black mission figs; and the grilled sepia, or cuttlefish, that Sarah loved so much when she first reviewed the restaurant.
