Meet Tatiana Brunetti of The Church Key in West Hollywood

Today we’d like to introduce you to Tatiana Brunetti.

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
Los Angeles is an incredible city and every restaurant owner across the USA dreams of opening a restaurant in it. California has incredible ingredients, seafood, and wine. I’ve always wanted to open a restaurant in Los Angeles and I made it happen.

Has it been a smooth road?
Big cities all differ from one another so there are always going to be hiccups you don’t expect when you’re used to how they do it elsewhere. Finding the perfect team was a challenge but today The Church Key has a dream team. Having an incredible team is everything to me and I’m proud to call them my family!

So let’s switch gears a bit and go into The Church Key story. Tell us more about the business.
We are a creative team. We don’t sit and wait for things to happen to the restaurant; we go out and make them happen. We change our menu often (every 6 weeks or so) which gives us seasonal ingredients to play with. Same goes with mixology: our signature cocktails change every 2 months. We have weekly, themed signature nights which are as follows:
• Tuesdays, Church Key Fried Chicken: We feature our “CKFC” Buttermilk Fried Chicken plus specialty, seasonal sides as well as a limited menu.
• Wednesdays, Wine & Dine Night: Diners can enjoy a 26 oz. Bone-in New York Steak for two & a selected bottle of the wine of the night for $99
• Thursday, Tequila Night: shots start at $5 because who doesn’t love tequila?

During these nights we offer our guests fun dinner options on weeknights. Our offerings have great values and help break up a mundane work week.

How do you think the industry will change over the next decade?
In the next 5 – 10 years, I see a continuing shift to healthier cuisine. People are increasingly becoming more and more health conscious so they are watching their calories and paying greater attention to what they’re putting in their bodies. Consumers are choosing organic food as well as lighter cuisine in general, so I see the restaurant world adapting to fit this trend.


  • Tuesdays: Church Key Fried Chicken Night: $21 half / $34 whole plus cheddar jalapenos biscuits, two chef sides
  • Wednesday: Wine and Dine Steak and Wine Night: 26 oz. bone-in new york steak for two and a selected bottle of the wine of the night for $99
  • Thursday: Tequila Night: Herradura Tequilla shots for $8, house tequila for $5 and $6 margaritas
