Sai Sai’s menu is an exercise in culinary play.

106Church & State

Address: 1850 East Industrial Street, Los Angeles, CA  90021   Make a Reservation
Church & State
New
This French bistro only opened in September 2008, but has become an instant classic in downtown LA. The menu is concise but runs the gamut from simple rustic dishes like the Braised Beef to more elevated fare like the Terrine de Foie Gras, which is creatively served with a port wine gelee and brioche. Customers often rave about the housemade charcuterie as well.

For the real Paris experience, diners can also ... Learn More »

Blue Velvet, a new addition to the Los Angeles culinary scene, is surprisingly refreshing. Nested in a newly constructed sustainable apartment complex called the Flat, the restaurant dishes up exquisite cuisine— with a conscious.
