Philippe The Original Restaurant

1001 Alameda St.
Los Angeles, CA 90012-1803


Located 1 block north of Union Station, Olvera St., and the Hollywood 101 Freeway at Alameda and Ord Sts.

From the Los Angeles Times
TIMES PAST: January 25, 1948
The Train Didn't Have a Reservation

January 25, 2006

Before the Hollywood Freeway gouged through the Aliso Street neighborhood downtown, a Santa Fe El Capitan train engine overshot Union Station and crashed through a wall, into an electric trolley pole, and almost into the laps of restaurant diners. The brakeman jumped out before the crash, but the engineer stayed on until the engine stopped, dangling 20 feet above Aliso Street.
