American

Although not a steakhouse per se, 5Church, set in a beautiful old church with high ceilings and stained glass windows, is known for its 60-second steak. Chef Jamie Lynch paints his meats with rendered beef fat before searing them on the grill, a process the kitchen refers to as the “Bob Ross,” in honor of everyone’s favorite painter. The 60-second steak gets its name from the cooking process: the cut is seared on one side until it reaches a medium-rare temperature, which takes about 60 seconds. The extra-juicy, crispy crust on the opposite side is a favorite among carnivores who like their steaks as far from well done as possible.
