Five Crowns and SideDoor are thrilled to reopen for indoor dining service on Friday, September 11 featuring a late-summer menu of seasonal specials. Guests can once again choose to enjoy the restaurants’ unrivaled hospitality from within the beloved, historic venue while al fresco dining in the beautiful Backyard Patio & Garden and takeout with curbside pickup and local delivery options remain in place.

Welcoming guests back indoors with new seasonal dishes to reflect Southern California’s late-summer bounty, Executive Chef Alejandra Padilla presents indulgent starters including Steak Tartar with watercress, grilled ciabatta and egg yolk, or entrées like the Colorado Lamb Chops with black garlic glaze, sautéed spinach and jalapeno mint.

Operating at 25 percent capacity, modifications have been made to the spaciously appointed dining rooms, and already stringent sanitation procedures have been amplified to ensure a safe environment for guests and co-workers alike. To view Five Crowns and SideDoor’s full Reopening Plan visit
