French Dips: History on a Bun, a Window into Early Los Angeles

French Dips: History on a Bun, a Window into Early Los Angeles
We love French dip sandwiches - carved slices of just-roasted beef piled on the bottom half of a fresh-baked French roll, a slice of Swiss or provolone on top of that, with the top of the bun quickly dipped in beef au jus and gently pressed on top of the meat.

We love the way they get sort of drippy ooey-gooey, and with just a little mustard or horse relish added at the last minute to create kind of a juicy sauce with a kick. A small cup of beef au-jus for dipping ... a couple of cold Kosher dill pickle slices on the side ... the mouth waters just at the thought of it all.

A Pretty Good Prime Rib Buffet Dinner in Cody, Wyoming
We love it when we can literally step into Old West history, pull up a chair and chow down on one of our favorite foods-prime rib-and that's exactly what we did when we visited Cody, Wyoming and had dinner at Buffalo Bill's Irma Hotel Restaurant and Saloon.

The Irma Hotel is real Wild West history, and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places by the National Park Service. Buffalo Bill (real name William F. Cody) was instrumental in founding the town of Cody in the late 1890s. Ever the showman and entrepreneur, Cody believed the town could be viable as a base camp for people wanting to visit the wonders of Yellowstone, or on their way to the growing number of dude ranches in the area.
