Musso & Frank Grill

Top choice steak in Hollywood

Hollywood history hangs in the thick air at Musso & Frank Grill, Tinseltown’s oldest eatery (since 1919). Charlie Chaplin used to knock back vodka gimlets, Raymond Chandler penned scripts in the high-backed booths, and movie deals were made on the old phone at the back (the booth closest to the phone is favored by Jack Nicholson and Johnny Depp).

Like the place itself, the menu has no shortage of bistro classics, from shrimp cocktail and French onion soup, to lobster thermidor, lusty steaks and a decent burger.
