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.
