New Menu Items Drop at For Five

Alright Nomsters, I recently had the opportunity to experience For Five’s newest menu items so I’m super excited to share thoughts with you all.  I visited their Alexandria, VA location, and got 3 dishes to try:  their croque madame ($19.95), steak + eggs breakfast sandwich ($20.95), and B.L.A.T. sandwich ($18.95).

BLAT sandwich for five

For Five’s food is always solid, but there was a clear standout:  The B.L.A.T. sandwich. Made with maple-glazed think cut bacon, lettuce, avocado, tomato, and basil mayo on brioche, this epic handheld was super on point.  Can we just talk about how much bacon there is thought?  So ridiculously tasty and flavorful.  I was a HUGE fan, and I loved that it came with a small arugula side salad.

The croque madame came with smoked ham, gruyere cheese, poached eggs, dijon mustard and bechamel sauce on sourdough.  And as you can see, the size was enormous, but I probably wouldn’t get this again.  Don’t get me wrong! It tasted fine, but I’m very particular about CMs so I’d have to pass, especially since there are plenty of menu items here I like more.

Anddd lastly, their steak + eggs breakfast sandwich.  This is a really great option if you’re hungry – it comes with a TON of meat, and it’s dressed with jicama, arugula, skirt steak, parmesan pumpkin pesto and a fried egg on brioche.  The steak could’ve been a little more tender IMO, but definitely expect to enjoy lots of great textures with this dish.

for five lunch options

Craving something a little more lunchy?  Their spicy vodka rigatoni’s delicious, and I absolutely love their Korean chicken bao buns.  And they’re known for their stuffed cookies so maybe get a few to go if you want to treat yourself to something sweet.

Alright friends, that’s a wrap for today! Let me know what you thought of today’s post by leaving a comment below, and head to my Virginia tab for more delish NoVa eats.  Robby and I update daily so make sure you check back soon – until next time!
