Musso & Frank Celebrates 100 Years

The iconic restaurant Musso & Frank Grill has become an on-screen celeb itself, with their interior/exterior featured in dozens of productions. First utilized in 1920 when Buster Keaton ‘s film “Cops” became the first in a long line of films and TV shows. Some of the legendary features include: “Ed Wood” (1944) “Sex and the City” (2000) and “La La Land” (2016).

Over the years, they have become synonymous with the entertainment business and this year is no exception. Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” visits Musso & Frank in 1969, and brings along super-stars Brad Pitt, Leonardo Di Caprio and Al Pacino to join him. As Tarantino states: “I am so lucky to have the legendary Musso & Frank exist exactly as it always has been”. It is an iconic landmark that truly exemplifies Hollywood.
