It’s no secret that Philippe’s The Original in Los Angeles(on the very edge of Chinatown near Union Station) is one of my favorite places on the planet. I have been going there since I was a child and actually stood in line with a number of friends for over 3 hours to get sandwiches at $ 1.10 each for their 110 year anniversary back in 2018. It’s also one of the few places that I have had every menu item(more than once) and also take first time visitors to Los Angeles here because it’s so special.
Philippe’s had initially closed due to the Coronavirus mitigation efforts and still holds the safety
of all staff and the public as the highest priority. They also needed to regroup.
