5Church Restaurant Review

: The dramatic décor catches your attention first in this chic uptown restaurant. Chandeliers made with bright white feathers hang from a ceiling on which the entire text of "The Art of War" is hand painted. Start your night at the long bar where you’ll find creative cocktails like the “Bourberry,” a sweet mixture of bourbon, raspberry liqueur, lemon juice and raspberries. Chef Jamie Lynch’s menu, which includes small “snack” plates in addition to first and main courses, presents options ranging from a popular lamb burger topped with Gorgonzola to a “60-Second” New York strip steak, only cooked on one side. Vegetarians have options such as crispy marinated tofu with seasonally changing toppings. The s’more trifle with toasted marshmallow offers an upscale twist on the playful dessert. The red-leaning wine list draws heavily from big name California labels --- Stags Leap, Conn Creek, Caymus, Simi --- although a few choices from other regions are offered, such as an Argentine Malbec, a South African Shiraz and a French Syrah.
