Charlotte-based restaurant 5Church is coming to Atlanta this week, opening its third location in Midtown on Friday. James Beard winner RJ Cooper is running the kitchen, and he'll serve a menu that features Southern an modern American staples such as Frogmore stew, a selection of steaks, roasted pork belly, and a lamb burger.

5Church's interior design includes an element that is sure to get most of the attention: Sun Tzu's The Art of War is painted in its entirety on the ceiling. It could be an attempt to simply draw some buzz, but the owners say it portrays their collective philosophy. "In our minds, there is no such thing as ‘I created this success' because we all contribute," says managing partner Ayman Kamel. Aside from the ancient Chinese military treatise, the restaurant's design is what ownership calls neo-Victorian. Look for black leather banquettes, chandeliers, and large-scale works from local artists inspired by Atlanta.

5Church is located at 1197 Peachtree St. NE. Take a look around inside via the photos below.

Artwork at 5Church isn't subtle. Here's one artist's take on the five-dollar bill.

More currency- and five-themed artwork in the form of a Buffalo nickel.

Another nod to buffaloes and the number five.

Wine racks and a tree in the middle of the main dining room — appropriate since Atlanta is a city in a forest.
