The Musso and Frank Grill aka Musso and Frank’s, or simply “Musso’s” is one of my favorite restaurants in the WORLD and I’m lucky to have it right here in my own backyard! The oldest restaurant in Hollywood, built in 1919, is an old “New York style” restaurant with red booths, dark wood, stiff cocktails and an a la carte menu straight out of 1961 with Welsh rarebit, Lobster Thermidor and Shrimp Louis.
This is where you want to meet Don Draper and Roger Sterling for a 3 martini lunch- as 4 would be too many! In fact, “Mad Men” and many other productions have filmed throughout the years at this glorious location- because in the past 97 years or so- nothing has changed!
Musso’s is as famous as the celebrities who occupy its booths. Everyone, and I mean, everyone eats at Musso’s. The last time I was there I was in sourdough bread-throwing distance of Dave Grohl, Sean Penn and the Mayor Of Los Angeles! Ya know, just any given Tuesday! You can sit in the Charlie Chaplin booth or you can sit in the Marilyn booth.
Or you can sit in my booth- in the “new” room- built in 1955! Here’s the view!
Here’s to their 100th in 2019! Hopefully they go back to 1939 prices!
