Description

LA Weekly's Description

Before Musso & Frank Grill became a martini-fueled Hollywood clubhouse, the place where Faulkner blew out his liver and generations of character actors learned to show up on Wednesday for the chicken potpie, the restaurant was practically a showcase for what was then considered California cuisine, a genteel marriage of the local produce, abundant local fisheries and masculinized lunchroom cooking: avocado cocktails smeared with sweet, pink dressing and frigid bowls of chilled consommé; great naked planks of boiled finnan haddie and dainty plates of crab Louie; kidneys Turbigo. This is what the cosmopolitan life was like, before cosmopolitans. Or if you happen to be of a certain bent, you could always try a long, drowsy lunch of Vicodin, jellied consommé and Welsh rarebit, followed by a desert-dry Gibson and a long nap - an experiment in what one friend calls gout-stool cuisine.

    Musso & Frank is a piece of Hollywood history. Grab a serious cocktail from Manny at the bar (he's been there for over 30 years!) and then peruse the lengthy menu of traditional (somewhat pricey) American comfort food served in plentiful portions. It's the kind of place where you and your parents will be equally comfortable and have a great time. Love the sole and the steaks.... More >>

    If I could take you one place in Hollywood, it would probably be here.

    I half expect Frank Sinatra to walk in when I'm eating here.

    They print their menu daily but their items have been around for decades. The perfect dinner: martini served with the side carafe + liver and onions. Period. Nuff said. -Alex Reznik, Top Chef

    Musso's, if you look at it a certain way, is a living museum of 1920s American cuisine: avocado cocktails, crab Louie, jellied consommé, grilled lamb kidneys and Wednesday sauerbraten.
