Cole's does not disappoint as an historic downtown L.A. experience. The decor seems very authentic, inc. black-and-white hexagonal tiles, red pressed-tin ceiling, and photographs dating back to its 1908 founding. As it's the origin of French-Dipped Sandwiches, we had to try different varieties and all enjoyed them. Pickles and mustard are quite spicy, even the fries have "hot pockets," but servers warn you. The best part of our visit was an after-dinner drink in the back room speak-easy, with its hushed tones and creative mixology. We'll be back!
