The room is lovely and relaxed at lunch time without feeling empty. Easy parking, chic space with high ceilings, space between tables, big windows, efficient staff. The lunchtime crowd is relaxed, chic, "mature" (no-one under 35 years old whenever I have been there, which works...More

Great location for pre-Music Center dinner as it is literally minutes away. However, the restaurant is in a pretty sketchy area. Park in the lot right across the street. Pay the $6 and be safe. For cocktails, I ordered the vodka and pamplemousse cocktail called...More

It's been a couple years since we visited Church & State, but we were in the mood for classic brasserie fare, and you would be hard pressed to find a better and more authentic experience. Escargot in puff pastry, endive salad, perfect a point duck...More

This is an "iconic"and favorite LA downtown restaurant and now I know why. I ordered the pate appetizer and steak+frites. Amazing. I actually ate the salad that came with the pate first and it was stunning (and I'm not a vegetarian). The frites were perfection....More

Went to Church and State for a late lunch before going to the Broad Museum. It is in the industrial area of downtown LA in an old Nabisco Cracker Co. building . They have 2 parking lots to utilize. The restaurant is a bit cramped...More

Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering
buildings, bustling streets, and industrial
warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of
cultures here with a growing influx of business
professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of
Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts,
bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly.
Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants
