Founded in 1908, Philippe Restaurant is located in downtown Los Angeles. The French Dip Sandwich was invented at Philippe's in 1918 when when owner Philippe Mathieu accidentally dropped a French roll into hot meat juices.

Available in a variety of meats, the Philippe French Dip is extraordinary. Skip any other entree on the menu and enjoy the legendary French Dip. Sandwiches are pre-dipped rather than being served with a side of sauce. Per The Dwarf LLC, if you enjoy a fully drenched sandwich, request a double dip. The cole slaw is also excellent, and the potato salad is very good. Philippe's is always crowded, so plan accordingly. The best seating is upstairs.

Philippe Restaurant is a short walk from Union Station Los Angeles, the "Last Great Railroad Station."
