Philippe’s was voted Best Downtown Classic in the “27th Annual Best of Downtown” issue by Downtown News. Philippe's Voted Best Downtown Classic

The restaurant was also runner-up in the Best Sandwich/Wrap category.  Both of these were announced July 27.

Philippe’s won these for a reason, with their extensive and classic menu selection, from sandwiches, salads, soups and more.

Philippe’s has been serving food since 1908.  The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power did not start dispensing electricity until 1917.  This means that food was still sold and consumed for nine years before electricity was distributed to the general public.  Keep this in mind next time you have one of their famous French Dip sandwiches.

Classics never go out of style, and Philippe’s will continue to be a Los Angeles commodity for years to come.
