THE GET DOWN
If I can put one restaurant on Hollywood’s walk of fame, I would choose Musso and Franks. Musso and Franks epitomizes the regal scene of the Hollywood Lifestyle. Dimmed lights, maître d’s, waiters in tux’s tending to your every need…yass. This is surely how everyone deserves to be treated.
The interior is reminiscent of a movie set; Red leather booths, goldeny worn walls, a mahogany bar… You will definitely feel like you are a part of something very special here at Musso and Franks. Everyone who was anyone once dined at Musso and Franks. From Greta Garbo to Marilyn Monroe…Rita Hayworth to Groucho Marx. If the walls could talk, ohhh the stories they would tell.
Feeling like steak? This is the specialty here at Musso and Franks. All the meat is cooked on an open fire grill, which happens to be the oldest in LA. It gives a slight mesquite flavor to the meat. Musso and Franks prides itself on perfection, so I assure you, whatever comes off that grill will hit your taste buds just right.
If you’re dining with the peepsqueaks, and they are not feeling a steak or chop, I highly suggest going with the half roasted chicken and a couple side dishes. The chicken is enough for two adults plus a shorty! And the Lyonnaise potatoes are to die for!!
Is your little still not convinced? Then let them go at those onion rings. They truly are the best we’ve ever had. The breading is thick, crisp and not greasy. And the onions are super sweet. Perfection I tell you!
If you are passing through Hollywood and realize Musso and Franks has been on your bucket list for quite some time now, just go ahead and stop in. Valet parking is available in the back of the restaurant and there are counter seats alongside the grill with no reservation required. The kids will get a kick out of the spinning seats and be entertained by all the action at the counter.
And if you just want to be a part of history and don’t have an appetite (or the kids) to bring to the table, then pull up to Musso and Franks mahogany bar, order a martini and make history.
