It's hard to be ordinary, when in fact you're extraordinary... and here's where Philippe steps "up to the plate!"
The oldest and best known restaurant in Southern California has been family owned and operated since 1908... and that's incredibly hard to beat.
Located in the heart of downtown at the crossroads of North Main, Alameda and Ord streets- a block from Union Station and walking distance to City Hall, Chinatown, Little Tokyo, and Olvera Street.
Diners come to Philippe's for the nostalgia as much as for its famous French Dip Sandwiches. Its recipe and preparation has been passed on through four generations and today it is being overseen by dynamic great-great-great grandson Andrew Binder, who is at the helm as manager/partner.
Other famous menu Dip items include, lamb, turkey, pork, ham and pastrami. Tasty sides include potato and macaroni salad, coleslaw and kosher dill pickles.
Philippe is located at 1001 N. Alameda in L.A. Phone (213)628-3781 or www.philippes.com
