To start off the night right, head to the Virtue Cocktail lounge on the roof to try some of their killer cocktails. The Verde cocktail made with gin, cilantro and jalapeno is a spicy kickoff to a fun evening. For a unique appetizer, you'll want to get the sushi tots! Protip: make sure to self park and get your parking validated when you dine. Valet parking is $25!

The lamb loin and grouper (both pictured below) were fantastic entrees. With trumpet mushrooms and a new sauce I'd never heard of - Agrodolce, I also loved the Chestnut polenta that came with it. Made with sugar and vinegar, Agrodolce also uses fruit to contrast sweet and tangy. Vegetarians will enjoy the heart Mushroom Bolognese.

You really can't go wrong with any of the special fall menu dishes at 5Church. Plus, it is incredible that each of the dishes have such a breadth of items that comprise them. And it isn't limited to one type of cuisine. For example while the lamb loin is all around American, the grouper with okra and blistered tomatoes is more southern. Then of course you have a not to the Caribbean with the jerk chicken. We can't wait to go back to try the that one. Below are some of the highlights of the new fall menu.

  • Roasted Delicata Squash / barley, dried cherries, toasted walnuts, baby beets, sage & roasted garlic aioli
  • Half Roasted Jerk Chicken / pineapple rum glaze, sweet plantain hash, collard greens
  • Pan Seared Lamb Loin / chestnut polenta, trumpet mushrooms, pearl onions, fig and grape agrodolce
  • Mushroom "Bolognese" / orecchiette, house made lemon ricotta, micro basil
  • Sweet Potato Pie Cheesecake / toasted marshmallow whip, candied pecans, pomegranate coulis
