Philippe The Original

About

Philippe The Original is a restaurant located in Los Angeles, California at 1001 North Alameda Street. This restaurant serves angeleno ipa, turkey, tuna salad, caesar salad (serves 10), chicken caesar salad (serves 10), short stack with two eggs, and french roll (serves 15).  They also serve black olive, blue cheese, relish trays, caesar salad, biscuits & gravy, whole cake, and macaroni or potato. They are open every day of the week.

In 1918, in the process of making a policeman a sandwich, Mathieu accidentally dropped the sliced french roll into the roasting pan, which was filled with hot juices from the oven. The policeman said he’d still take the sandwich and left. The next day, the same policeman returned with some friends asking for more dipped sandwiches. The rest they say is history. Philippe’s is still in the location they were in 1951, at a machine shop with a hotel on the second floor. When walking through the doors, you’ll see their unique set-up.
