  Musso & Frank's

Musso & Frank's is a Hollywood landmark which was opened 1924. In its heyday it was a popular destination for Hollywood's elite, including movie stars, film directors and producers and the great writers F. Scott Fitzgerald and William Faulkner. The waiters can point out their favorite booths and tell stories about which books were partially written here.

Legend has it that Charlie Chaplin and Douglas Fairbanks once raced each other down Hollywood Boulevard on horseback, the loser having to pick up the dinner tab at Musso & Frank's. If you are interested in Hollywood History, this is a great place to have a meal.

Musso & Frank's is old school: dark and filled with red leather padded booths. The menu hasn't changed in years: they still serve some of the best martinis and steaks in town.

Favorite Dish: Musso & Frank serves old-fashioned American/Continental food. The menu definitely has the flavor of years gone by: Corn beef and cabbage (on Tuesdays), shrimp cocktails, Welsh rarebit and jellied consommé and chicken pot pie (on Thursdays). Steaks are always good here and I like the fish and chips a lot too.
