Church & State is a French bistro located on the ground floor of the original NABISCO bakery and offices, built in 1925, occupying what was once the loading dock of the National Biscuit Company. When the doors first swung open to welcome diners in September of 2008, it was one of the first restaurants to open in the now bustling Arts District of downtown Los Angeles.
The cuisine is traditional French Bistro fare, created using only seasonal produce of the highest quality. All of our products come from organic farms and have been compassionately raised without antibiotics or hormones. Classics include Steak Frites, Escargot, Roasted Marrow Bone, House-made Charcuterie, Moules Frites, Steak Tartare, Tarte Flambée, and a selection of French and artisanal American cheeses.
The restaurant has a full bar serving seasonal hand-crafted cocktails, and an all-French wine list containing many organic and biodynamic selections.
