The restaurant world in Los Angeles is rapidly changing, and it seems that no matter how old the eatery there’s always something new to try. Case in point: Philippe The Original’s plan, as of today, to start offering delivery.
The plan, says popular delivery app Caviar, is to bring Philippe’s in as a full-time partner, which means customers will be able to enjoy their own French dip sandwiches without leaving the office. The new delivery option kicks off today , with Philippe’s also turning out soups. sides, salads, and desserts to help complement the iconic sandwich.
It’s just the latest restaurant coup for Caviar, which already courts such popular local restaurants as Belcampo, BLD, Canter’s, Chego, Ledlow, and Pok Pok. It also represents yet another update to Los Angeles’ longstanding dining traditions. There’s always been something to standing in line at Philippe The Original, likely before a Dodgers game, but with the rise of the city’s restaurant culture (and lots of money from locals to spend) it seems folks are willing to pay a premium for the ability to have that nostalgia delivered to them instead.
You know the world is changing when, in the same day, Philippe’s starts doing delivery and Tito’s Tacos begins accepting credit cards.
