National French Dip Day

National French Dip Day is celebrated in America on November 12th and is a delicious holiday not to be missed! Just imagine the smell of a fragrant meat sandwich – there are so many variations of this dish, so find your favorite and mark the date!


The holiday commemorates the centenary of the restaurant that first served the sandwich, which was on November 12th, 1908. It is believed that the restaurant in Los Angeles, Cole’s, is the birthplace of the sandwich, though there is another establishment, Philippe’s, which also claims this title. Cole’s was closed for a time, but has since been reopened by a new owner in 2008 and is still open today!
