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. We suggest the “Coco Loco” duck mole featuring tender duck braised in a local toasted-coconut porter (the beer is on tap as well). Vegetarians have options such as a kale risotto or a crispy marinated tofu, both with toppings that change seasonally. 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 --- Opus One, PlumpJack, Caymus, Simi --- although a few choices from other regions are offered, such as an Argentine Malbec, a South African Shiraz and a Spanish red.
