When Philippe the Original, the hallowed and hankering-filled home of the French Dip, reopened for takeout and delivery on Wednesday, Dec. 23, something a little special, and seasonal, also happened.
For the restaurant revealed it has not one but two ornaments created for Philippe's fans, the sort of tree-pretty baubles that clearly and colorfully show your particular food fancies.
And if you're a French Dip devotee, through and through, and a maven of the historic eatery's iconic hot mustard, you can now place both on your Christmas tree.
Well, no, an actual French Dip won't dangle from the branches of your fir, and a real jar of hot mustard is pretty heavy. But images of both can now adorn a tree, a mantel, or wherever you like to display holiday decorations.
Each is priced at $10.95. The French Dip ornament's page is here, while you can buy your hot mustard ornament by visiting this page now.
Note that if you choose to have them shipped, they'll arrive after Christmas 2020.
