New Chef at Five Points; DOH Hits Snack Box

NOHO— Noho veteran Five Points just got a new chef, Ricky King. King began as the chef at sister restaurant Hundred Acres and is now the executive chef for both restaurants. He was brought over, owner Marc Meyer says, because "we're a growing restaurant and he's a growing chef" and they "believe he is more than a one store chef." [EaterWire]
