Angelenos have a brand new reason to brave the gridlock and travel east of Sunset Blvd. Church & State French restaurant has opened its doors as the house restaurant to the Biscuit Company Lofts in downtown L.A., one of the city’s hottest new loft residences.
Located at street level, Church & State is one of the many incentives offered by building owners to attract prospective buyers and increase patronage of the burgeoning loft community.
Despite its industrial ceilings with exposed pipes and beams, the restaurant offers an unexpectedly cozy atmosphere. While the deep red walls and the café string of lights contribute to this coziness, the pièce de résistance is the warm hardwood flooring. The floors are original from the 1925 construction when the Nabisco Company inhabited the space for the baking of its crackers, cookies, wafers and, of course, biscuits!
So saddle up at the bar for some pommes frittes and a glass of Beaujolais Nouveau. Chances are you’ll strike up a conversation with one of the tragically hip residents and—if you’re lucky—get a loft tour out of it (that’s what this blogger is hoping for)!
