LOS ANGELES - Philippe the Original, a famous downtown Los Angeles eatery, reopened on Friday after being closed for cockroach infestation.

A "notice of closure" sign was posted outside the restaurant on North Alameda Street, stating the official reason for the closure from the health department as vermin harborage and vermin infestation.
