Celebrate National French Dip Day this Monday at Cole’s!

Every city has its own local restaurant debate. Gino’s vs. Pat’s cheesesteaks, The Anchor Bar vs. Duff’s hot wings and Patsy’s vs. Lombardi’s pizza. Here in LA, Cole’s and Phillipe’s have long vied for the title of originator of the French dip sandwich. In fact, Phillipe’s full name is Phillipe’s the Original. So take that. French dips aside, both places have their merits: an old-school casual atmosphere, spicy mustard and 25-cent cups of coffee at Phillipe’s versus a full bar, comfy booths and atomic pickles at Cole’s.

But this Monday, touted as National French Dip Day, there will be no competition. Cole’s, which is celebrating their 110th anniversary this year, is offering French dip and martini combos for only $10 from opening until closing. Also, Cole’s was restored and resurrected by the 213 Hospitality Group in 2008, and we love Cedd Moses. So it has that going for it. Cole’s French Dip 118 E 6th St., Los Angeles, CA 90014. Parking is notoriously difficult. $10 French Dip + Martini combo specials Monday, Nov. 12, 12 p.m. – 2 a.m.
