New Tapas Restaurant Coming to St. James

The former home to O's will now be Five.Five2.

With the popular St. James restaurant O's Food and Wine Bar closing, Five.Five2 will be moving in.

The new eatery will take over the 552 Route 25A location, and according to an employee, should be open by the end of October. Another employee setting up the restaurant Thursday said it will serve an international tapas cuisine.

The owner of Five.Five2 was not available for comment.

O's received four out of five stars on its Smithtown Patch business listing and in a November 2011 feature on Smithtown Patch reader Jonathan Jacobs commented, saying he was "Glad to have it back! Great food and atmosphere."

Also on that location when I was younger was a bar called "The Office". We would go there to see the bands who played there several nights a week. One of the bands that played there often was "The Hassles". The organ player in the Hassles was Billy Joel. We knew back then that he was destined for far more

Very disapointing. Expensive

The wine list is extensive and interesting. The menu is focused and well executed. All wines are offered by the glass, served in a quatrino. The owner, Glenn, has created a warm and inviting lounge area that offers tapas and live music. A sophisticated addition to St. James.

they call themselves a tapas bar. please five thigs to choose from and my wife and i sat for 20 minutes and no waiter or waitress stepped up even to see if we needed a drink. the little manager approached us after 15 minutes if we had a server i told him no and he said he would get us one asap. five to ten minutes later no one showed. my wife and i got up and walked out never in my life have i ever had to do that. i know all about restauanting and they need to go back to school and learn something new that place sucks all around. anyone that thinks they deliver needs to live a little outside the box. if anyone wants good food and an excellent dining experience go down the block to H2O restauant at least they dont lack the experience.
