A New Place to Eat in LA
Posted on October 6, 2008 Posted by John Scalzi 3 Comments
The LA Times has nice things to say about Church & State, a new French bistro that’s opened up in downtown Los Angeles, and which my high school classmate, the fabulous Yassmin Sarmadi, just happens to be a principal of (along with Steve Arroyo, who has apparently made a name for himself in the LA restaurant scene). If you’re in the LA area and are looking for some place new to try, why not check it out? And if you see Yassi there, tell her I said hello. I’ll be dropping by there myself the next time I’m in LA, which will be in November. I’m looking forward to it.
I had to smile at the description of that eatery, in the article, as a “working-class French bistro”. Oh, it does look like it’d be at home in Paris! But definitely not geared at a working class clientele.
Please hurry the hell up with that subway line to the Westside so I can eat and drink Downtown without worrying about driving home afterwards. Especially if the place I’m going to has an in-house charcuterie.
Love and kisses,
Mmmmm. This is relevant to my interests. And my geography.
But I must second Adam’s call for more subway coverage, altough since I live a stone’s heave from a train station, I mainly just want them to run later so as to extend my evening out. Not that I would rejoice if suddenly I could take the train to Culver City.
