Philippe the Original

One of two restaurants with a claim to inventing the French Dip sandwich, Philippe the Original serves up its delicious sopping sandwiches alongside other traditional deli fare. Located downtown by Union Station, Philippe has been open since 1908, making it an historical landmark by LA standards. The dark interior has a nostalgic feel, and your children will enjoy exploring the restaurant, which is packed full of local memorabilia.
