RE: French Dip
I loved Phillipe"s atmosphere. To me, the roadfood experience is equal parts food and atmosphere. Phillipe's looks like a place where Phillip Marlowe and Joe Friday would have hung out. I liked the combo of people reading the racing form, guys in suits, people from Chinatown, the cheap coffee and the colorful huevos. The French dip is passable , the atmosphere unforgettable.
