The Bar Tab 

We just heard that an upscale food joint/watering hole called the Fifth is opening at 112 S. Orange Ave. in April. The V Group, which operates Vintage Lounge, Vixen Bar and NV Art Bar, is behind this venture, and it promises “sleek and modern design,” premium drinks and a menu consisting of classic comfort food “with a twist” created by chef Dean Holland from Le Cordon Bleu. We hope the concept is as well-crafted as the V Group promises, because this actually sounds like the kind of dining that should be found all around downtown.
