Okay, so the French Dip apparently isn’t French! It seems it was invented in the US at one of two restaurants, both built in the 1890’s. Since Cole’s Restaurant in LA, California created the day in 2018, apparently they win… having created the sandwich on November 12th, 1908. While I give them credit I do find it hard to believe that no one before that thought about dipping their sandwich in the broth they cooked the meat in before that.
How to celebrate – Have a French Dip sandwich. Visit Cole’s in California. Invent your own new sandwich
