The much awaited Cole's Pacific Electric Buffet--the supposed oldest restaurant and sallon in the city--reopened in downtown Los Angeles last week. People flocked and they reviewed. One of those was LAist Featured Photos contributor on Flickr, two wheels good, who submitted this photo.

He tried both the roast beef and turkey French dips--100-cents each. "The lethal atomic mustard, tasty Dijon mustard, spicy grain mustard and of course extra au jus," he wrote. "The sandwich couldn't be more basic, but the meat is very tasty and the au jus on the flaky bread gives it a great texture. And the mustard doesn't overwhelm the flavors (just your sinuses if you have the atomic stuff)."

It was all finished off with "two crunchy, sweet 100 cent pecan pies for the crowning touch."
