Evening Service at 5 Church

0

5 ChurchWe were so impressed with our splendid brunch at 5 Church, LC and I didn’t waste any time returning for dinner. Seductive lighting, plus a few cocktails, made the space even more intoxicating at night. Seated on a black leather banquette, both of us faced the bar surrounded by graffiti-style artwork commissioned by 5 Church.

Mushroom Flatbread at 5 Church
Having previewed the menu, I was ready to order as soon as we walked in. We began with the Tuna Poke, the dish that piqued my interest on the brunch menu weeks before. There was also a flatbread with mushrooms and burrata that I wanted to try. A scallop entrée would be plenty for us to share, but LC decided to include the crab and seaweed salad at the last minute.
Hummus at 5 Church
A bowl of black-eyed pea hummus and toasted pita was delivered to nibble on. As our cocktails arrived, the bar was filling up with pretty people. A few moments later we received the popular Tuna Poke, made with diced ahi tuna tossed with avocado, chilies, pineapple, soy sherry and puffed rice that provided a crunchy contrast to the delicate tuna and creamy avocado.
Crab Salad at 5 Church
A traditional seaweed salad flavored with sesame oil and vinegar was topped with jumbo lump crab dressed with a zingy soy-ginger vinaigrette…so fresh and light. Then our flatbread arrived, super thin and crispy with creamy burrata, earthy wild mushrooms, garlic chips and black truffles. It was my favorite dish of the evening.
Scallops at 5 Church
Our scallops were expertly seared and drizzled with a porky bacon vinaigrette and served with tender baby carrots. As we gobbled them up, managing partner Ayman Kamel spotted us. He had been there during our recent brunch visit, and joined us for a cocktail. Next thing you know, our dinner bill was taken care of…an unexpected treat!
60-Second Steak at 5 Church
He also ordered another treat for us, the 60-Second Steak. A house specialty, it is a thick cut of prime New York strip, seared on one side to medium, while the other side remained rare. The side of oven baked mac ‘n’ cheese just added to the decadence. Most of it came home with us because…
Dessert at 5 Church
…we had to save room for dessert! The s’mores dessert was a deconstructed delight of crushed Graham Crackers, dark chocolate, and toasted marshmallow. Simply divine.
