Recommendation by Lemi
Since opening in 1919, The Musso & Frank Grill has been the go-to restaurant of the film industry’s movers and shakers. The red-jacketed, bow-tie wearing waiters have served silent movie legend Charlie Chaplin ("Modern Times," 1936) his favorite Roast Lamb Kidneys; the worn-leather boots have witnessed arch-rival gossip writers Hedda Hopper and Louella Parsons interview stars; and the mahogany bar has welcomed “To Have and Have Not” (1944) husband-and-wife actors Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall for a drink. Sidle up to the counter, and ask Ruben Rueda—who has been slinging cocktails since 1967—to concoct the Musso & Frank Grill’s famous martini, recognized as one of the USA’s best. Take it easy, though, unless you want to find yourself making pretend film deals on the old payphone.
