Musso & Frank Grill – Still Hollywood’s Greatest
Dining Then Is Dining Now at
It is always thrilling to take our guests on a private custom tour of Los Angeles into Musso & Frank Grill on Hollywood Boulevard. Why? Because the past really comes alive for them. Our guides have prepared our visitors for this particular historic destination with tales of old Hollywood and even some stories of ancient Hollywood that we have researched. Which famous movie stars ate here, where they preferred to sit, their cocktail of choice (martinis are a specialty). There are even some servers here who harken back to Golden Age Hollywood and can tell tales if we get there at a quiet time and decide to order a drink or a meal. The restaurant originally opened next door to its present location back in 1919 when Hollywood was still an enfant terrible in the business world but people and money were flooding westward to participate in the growing enterprise of filmed entertainment. D.W. Griffith, Cecil B. DeMille and Charlie Chaplin reigned supreme at the numerous tiny (by today’s standards) studios nearby that were churning out silent films. The best place then for steak and a stiff drink? That’s right, Musso & Frank Grill. The best place today? You guessed it. Great food and a touch of real Hollywood history in the heart of town.
