5 Church opened about two years ago on Market Street in downtown Charleston. The building – an old church dating back to the early 1900s – has a rich history. And the architecture is nothing short of spectacular with its large stained glass windows and high ceilings. The entryways are arched, and the interior is a mixture of exposed wood and brick.
The designers of 5 Church took advantage of the beauty of the building and added their own artistic touches that definitely add to the restaurant’s upscale ambiance. Attractive light fixtures adorn the bar and dining room. The mood lighting around the bar attracts people who want to see and be seen.
But, this restaurant’s attractive interior isn’t the only reason you should visit. Choose from an array of cocktails as well as a menu that only someone from “Top Chef” would have helped create. Head Chef Jamie Lynch will be a contestant on the upcoming “Top Chef” season in Charleston. He was academically accredited in New England as a culinary artisan and he developed professional experience at 4-star restaurants, including Le Cirque, Café Boulud and Aureole.
Menu items include a delicious filet mignon or New York strip steak. The lamb burger is also quite tasty. And, make sure you save room for dessert, especially the s’mores trifle.
Their wait staff is not only friendly, but also accommodating with health-conscious requests. They are timely with service and welcoming to all their guests. 5 Church on Market Street is definitely a restaurant that tourists and locals alike will enjoy for the ambiance, the convenient location, delicious drinks and tasty menu options.
