5Church Restaurant Review

: This chic uptown restaurant catches the eye with its dramatic décor. Chandeliers made with bright white feathers hang from a ceiling on which the entire text of "The Art of War" is hand painted. Begin the evening at the long bar with a taste of the house's creative cocktails such as the “Bourberry,” a sweet mixture of bourbon, raspberry liqueur, lemon juice and raspberries. Chef Jamie Lynch’s menu includes small “snacks” plates, such as chickpea salad with lemon vinaigrette and Parmesan, in addition to first and main courses, presenting options ranging from a popular lamb burger topped with Gorgonzola to a sautéed North Carolina trout paired with sweet potato purée. Vegetarian options include crispy marinated tofu with seasonally changing toppings. The s’mores trifle with toasted marshmallow cream 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 available, such as an Argentine Malbec, a South African Shiraz and a French Syrah.
