Owners of Five boot Woodman

Per both Zimmern and the Strib, the owners of Five have decided to fire Stuart Woodman and his wife.

In a recent thread, I wondered why Five never gets any mention around here. There was some initial buzz when it opened last year...

The general impression was "good but not outstanding," as one person put it. I thought the menu looked terrific, but it was also the most expensive in town (even higher than La Belle Vie for the tasting menu). That's a lot to pay for "good but not outstanding," so I never made plans to go, and after it dropped off the radar, I just sort of forgot about it.

What happened to Five? Did it fail to take off? Was it a victim of too much hype, too high prices, too low quality, chef ego, management cost-cutting, bad location...?
