A week after losing its chef, David Santos, 5 & Diamond has closed for renovations. A Zagat tipster notices a sign saying it will reopen September 8. The restaurant sent us a statement indicating it would soon announce a new chef, so well assume for now that it isnt pulling a Rhong-Tiam.

Update: 5 & Diamond's rep tells us, "The Zagat statement is correct. The restaurant will re-open with a new chef and renovated kitchen."
