Charlotte-based restaurant 5Church is opening an Atlanta outpost this spring, and it will serve the brand's standard menu plus a selection of dishes unique to the local restaurant. Now, we have an idea of what that local flavor will look like. Reps for 5Church provided a list of executive chef Jamie Lynch's ATL-specific dishes to Eater Atlanta.

  • Slow-cooked white sea bass. Served with grilled asparagus, marinated cucumber, preserved lemon, asparagus water, and cold-pressed olive oil.
  • Pan-seared scallops. Served with confit potato, melted leeks, Cipollini onion, and lemon grass-tomato coulis.
  • Braised rabbit agnolotti. Served with roasted baby carrots, English pea puree, and braising jus .
  • Confit duck breast. Served with potato latke, marinated heirloom tomato, black olive tapenade, charred romaine, soft-boiled duck egg, and dijon-sherry duck jus.
  • Pan-roasted grouper. Served with summer bean fricassee, American caviar, and garlic anchovy "milk."

Among the 5Church standard-bearers that also will show up on the menu are crispy Sichuan pork belly, yellowfin tuna tartare, and a "60 second" New York strip, which is cooked in its entirety on one side (and actually takes 12 to 15 minutes to prepare). When it opens, the restaurant will attempt to draw a decidedly swanky clientele in Midtown's former Shout space.

In addition to the Charlotte original and forthcoming Atlanta location, 5Church operates a restaurant that opened in Charleston last November.
