Cinco Bistro

Suburban standout Cinco keeps its loyal clientele returning for more by offering generous portions and familiar-sounding dishes, albeit often with an adventurous twist. A deftly balanced entrée of prawn gnocchi with brown butter and goat's curd arrives studded with raisins, adding an unexpected yet welcome sweetness. Pork belly braised in master stock shares a plate with a crisp apple slaw and chilli caramel sauce, and is rich and substantial. Those seeking lighter options may prefer the fresh-as-a-summer's-day orecchiette, tossed with broad beans, asparagus, chilli and pecorino. Service in the smart split-level dining room stays en pointe even as the venue fills, which happens frequently, even midweek. To finish, try a chocolate mousse topped with chocolate soil and mini scoops of mint sorbet. It's just like an after-dinner mint, only better. While the wine offering isn't epic, it's well-considered and well-priced, making it easy to find something to suit.
