A new dining destination in the Beltline District is attracting patrons from all over the city, thanks to the casual eatery’s tantalizing Japanese and French fusion fare.
Located on 17th Avenue (near 6th SW) 5s17, which stands for ‘Five senses on 17th Avenue’, offers lunch and dinner menus, which together showcase a combination of Japanese and French cuisine.
The 40-seat restaurant is owned by Matthew Bentley and Satoru Kogo, who also heads the kitchen. Kogo, previously at Zen 8 Grill, Bank and Baron, and Chicago Chop House, pays great attention to detail when it comes to preparing and plating his food, and lives by the motto that “the customer is always right, but the chef knows best”.
Menu highlights include Duck Confit Dumplings (blood orange chili sauce), Aburbi Beef Carpaccio (XO sauce, sesame oil, and fried leeks), Tuna Tartare (green apple, soy ginger vinaigrette, and wonton chips), Smoked Potage (smoked potato soup with XO chili sauce, and croutons), and a togarashi crusted Steak Wellington.
