Imagine a steakhouse menu that has gone virtually unchanged for the past 100 years. This is what you’ll see if you visit Musso & Frank’s in the heart of Hollywood. A staple in Tinseltown since 1919, Musso & Frank’s was designed to be a classic New York-style bar and restaurant, and has become synonymous with the West Coast entertainment industry.
The high ceilings, dark wood paneling and red leather booths have remained the same since the restaurant first opened its doors. Over the decades, a veritable list of who’s who in the film and literary industry have patronized Musso & Frank Grill.
Although Musso & Frank is worth visiting just for the history, the food is the main attraction. Entrees like Bone-In Ribeye, Filet Mignon, Roast Prime Rib, Lobster Thermidor and Filet of Sandabs keep guests coming back. Italian entrees are also on the menu, including the restaurant’s signature Fettucine Alfredo. The recipe for this famous Musso & Frank dish was given to the owners as a gift by Douglas Fairbanks and Mary Pickford, back when the restaurant first opened. They obtained the recipe from a chef in Rome, and customers haven’t stopped raving about it since.
