5Church Opens at 14th and Peachtree in Midtown June 24

5Church, a modern American restaurant, opens its doors Friday, June 24, at the corner of 14th and Peachtree streets. 5Church will welcome guests daily with genuine hospitality, a technique-driven dinner menu and cutting-edge design. What to do with the car at one of Atlanta’s busiest intersections? No worries, thanks to complimentary valet parking and an expansive self-parking deck. This is the third location for restaurateurs Patrick Whalen, Ayman Kamel, Alejandro Torio and chef Jamie Lynch, whose other 5Church restaurants include the flagship location at the corner of 5th and Church Street in Charlotte, North Carolina, and another in Charleston, South Carolina.

Lynch, also a partner in 5Church, and James Beard Award-winning executive chef RJ Cooper have collaborated to craft a menu inclusive of 5Church favorites along with locally sourced items Atlantans are sure to love. Dishes exclusive to the Atlanta menu include:
  • Slow-cooked white sea bass, grilled asparagus, marinated cucumber, preserved lemon, asparagus water, cold pressed olive oil
  • Pan-seared scallops, crispy confit potato, melted leeks, cipollini onion, lemongrass-tomato coulis
  • Confit duck breast, potato latke, marinated heirloom tomato, black olive tapenade, charred romaine, soft-boiled duck egg, Dijon-sherry duck jus
  • Pan-roasted grouper, summer bean fricassee, American caviar, garlic anchovy “milk”
  • Braised rabbit agnolotti, roasted baby carrots, English pea purée, braising jus

A 200-bottle wine list, specialty cocktails and craft beers complement the dinner menu and encourage guests to linger at impressive white concrete bars or enjoy a drink on the sidewalk and rooftop patios.

Managing partner Ayman Kamel says 5Church in Atlanta and its Carolina siblings share traits of delivering personal attention and a great dining experience. Even so, guests dining at the new Midtown location will see Atlanta’s unique personality the moment they enter, evident in large-scale artwork inspired by Atlanta and created by local artists, a hand-painted ceiling, eye-catching neo-Victorian décor and exquisite culinary presentations from Lynch and Cooper. 5Church is located at Colony Square, 1197 Peachtree Street NE. Enjoy dinner now; lunch and weekend brunch service will follow at a later date. Make reservations via OpenTable. For updates, follow the restaurant on InstagramFacebook andTwitter.
