For years, the tradition of a French Dip Sandwich and Dodger baseball have gone hand-in-hand.
Generations of fans have made a tradition out of stopping at Philippe’s before heading to the ball park, and now that the Dodgers are in the World Series there is plenty of L.A. history to be shared.
Saw dust floors, pay phones and French Dips hold as much meaning to Angelenos as Vin Scully, Roger the Peanut Man and Chavez Ravine.
It’s been 30 years since the memories merged in the perfect way, and with the Dodgers in the World Series, the only thing better would be a ring.
Baseball and Philippe’s aficionados know how to kick off games with tap beer and great food as the restaurant overflows in Dodger blue with chants of “Let’s Go Dodgers!”
The line-up of French Dips; beef, lamb, pork, ham, turkey and Pastrami is as talked about as the starting Dodger line-up on game day.
Some critics and foodies have recognized Philippe’s as a great place to eat, both before and after games, and in some cases second to only the Dodger Dog as a game day meal.
In 2018, Philippe’s will celebrate 110 years, and for over half of those years, the tradition of French Dips have been coupled with Dodger baseball.
