Church & State

Los Angeles, CA, 90021, United States
TEL: (213) 405-1434

Serving a contemporary take on French bistro cuisine, this eatery loccated inside a New-York-style loft space in east downtown. Church and State occupies a loading dock within the 1925 Nabisco building, and the interior design elements include dark wood, hanging string lights, and the building’s original brick walls and floor. Chef Walter Manzke, formerly of Bastide, plates up decadent French favorites including lard-cooked frites, sautéed diver scallops, and a tarte flambé stuffed with Gruyere and smoked bacon. The wine list has plenty of French options, while the cocktail selection has options like ginger julep, made with Plymouth gin, bols genever, mint, ginger, and lemon.

Insider Tip:

Downtown parking can be tricky, after dark especially. Look for the staffed pay lot diagonally across the street from the restaurant.
