Church & State Restaurant Review

About the restaurant: Restaurateur Yassmin Sarmadi and chef Tony Esnault have moved on from Church & State. (They will open a French restaurant named Knife Pleat at Costa Mesa’s South Coast Plaza.) Restaurateur Bill Chait (Tesse) has taken over the decade-old French bistro, which helped revivify downtown LA's Arts District. And it is now official Chef David Féau, formerly of Wally’s Beverly Hills and The Royce, oversees the kitchen.
