Musso & Frank Grill
Open since 1919, this classic restaurant was long the bastion of Hollywood industry power dining. With the look and feel of a private Men's club, Musso & Frank Grill rose to fame in the Golden Years of Hollywood, when Irving Thalberg, Clark Gable and the Marx Brothers were among its most celebrated clients. Nowadays, it is still considered the home of the finest dry martini in town. The Filet Mignon is hard to beat and the service is perfect, with just a touch of attitude. If you are not in the mood for beef, try the succulent lobster and the rich, heavy desserts.
This was a very historical restaraunt that appeals to the people interested in old holllywood. The dining is an experience for they cater to you like any high end establishment would. I ordered pork chops, which were just a bit tough, but good. The only thing is do not go looking for a bargain in prices. My meal was $24.00 not including tax and tip or drinks, it did not even come with a sald, although the food was plentifull and the bread is the best! I do recomend this place though for its old hollywood sensilbility and the dinnerware is so old fashioned in a good way. Even though I live not to far from this establishment, it was definently a fun and inviting experience! You might be able to see a ghost as well.
My father started going to Mussos 65 years ago. As a kid he took me all the time, and in my college days I went with friends when we could afford it. I hadnt been in years and just returned with my kids! The food is still great, and the atmosphere hasnt changed (neither have half the waiters, some have been waiting tables here for over 40 years!) Earnest Hemmingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald and William Faulkner used to sit at the bar, cant beat that!
