Hollywood Classic

On Saturday night Audrey and Jeff treated us to a divine dinner at Musso and Frank Grill in Hollywood in celebration of Larry's birthday. This was truly a treat! We LOVE Musso's. It's a historic landmark! The food is yummy, the atmosphere is old school and they have their own parking lot! This is a major plus in the middle of busy Hollywood, especially on a Saturday night.

The place was packed! Every other time I've been to Musso's, the place has been half-full. I guess I've never been there on a Saturday night. Since the revival of Hollywood Boulevard in the past 10 years, many new restaurants and bars have opened. Musso's has definitely kept up with the trendy places, offering excellent food and cocktails. You can read a bit about the history here.

Pimms Cup

We had drinks all around...Pimm's Cups for me and Audrey, martinis for the boys. Audrey and Jeff both had a first course. Audrey had the Cream of Tomato Soup and Jeff had the Iceberg Wedge Salad. For their main courses, Audrey had the Mushroom Risotto and Jeff had the Sand Dabs Meuniere. They shared a side of Sauteed Spinach. Larry ordered the Swordfish. I ordered the Liver and Onions. We shared a side of French Green Beans with Mushrooms. Our dinners were really delicious. Our waiter brought Larry a sweet piece of cake with custard filling for his b-day.

Oh! There were gifts too! Larry is one lucky guy and I felt fortunate to have been included in this generous celebration. Thanks, Audrey and Jeff for a fantastic evening!

Missed you by mere hours, as I enjoyed a fabboo brunch there the same day.

Seeing your photos, I can hear Huell Howser's voice in my head, recalling his Ca. Gold trip to M&F: [Thrusting the mic in some poor soul's face] "Isn't thy-us tha BEY-ST cream spinach you've had in yer LAHF?"
