Los Angeles has a Chinatown, a Koreatown… and it used to have a French Town, in the early 1900s, that was home to Basque immigrants from southern France.
Today, the only remnant of its existence is Philippe the Original, a 100-year-old deli that keeps a French Town tradition alive in the form of the French-dip—a roast beef sandwich on a French roll, dipped in au jus—that first came to be at this very deli in 1918.
