Anyone who knows Hollywood knows Musso & Frank, where the stars of the motion picture industry’s Golden Age often dined.
Everyone came to Musso’s: Charlie Chaplin, Greta Garbo, Humphrey Bogart and Marilyn Monroe.
Even as the world outside its doors changed with the times, Musso’s, which opened in 1919, embraced its old charms: steaks, chops and martinis served by waiters in red jackets to patrons in red leather booths. No one messed with the Musso mystique, because in a town where it’s sometimes hard to tell the difference, this was the real deal.
Now for the first time in decades, change has come to this Hollywood institution.
