With a new menu by executive chef Alejandra Padilla highlighting the flavors of the season, Victorian-style Christmas carolers spreading festive cheer, and classically charming interiors, Five Crowns is an ideal dining destination for the holidays.

The fall menu includes a selection of over seven new cocktails and nine new menu items. Start off with the Fritto Misto with delicately fried, crispy Hawaiian prawns, jalapeno, and calabrian chili aioli. Balance it out with the refreshing, beet and burrata salad, featuring vibrant, juicy beets accented with persimmon and coriander citrus vinaigrette. For the main entree, try the buttery scallops pan-seared to perfection with butternut squash purée, warm spices, and pumpkin seeds served with citrusy, leafy greens. Don’t miss the melt-off-the-bone lamb shank with a scallion potato pancake, horseradish purée, and caramelized onion jus.

The dishes pair well with the fall-themed libations including the Scotch and Cigars with belle meade, walnut liquor, turbo simple, and angostura bitters. The theatrical drink arrives to the table shrouded in smoke. The Fall Countryside cocktail captures the taste of autumn with buffalo trace, applejack, maple simple, lemon juice, angostura bitters, and apple bitters.

Complete your meal with indulgent desserts such as the honeycrisp apple crumble dessert with brown butter almond streusel and cinnamon ice cream or the signature, sticky toffee pudding with roasted persimmons, mascarpone whip, and orange tuile.

Catch the Christmas carolers and holiday decor at Five Crowns starting Dec. 1. Also check out the Thanksgiving Day menu, prix fixe Christmas Eve dinner, and the holiday prime rib dinners to-go.
