A Hollywood Classic

Established 1919

In celebration of Larry's birthday this year, we went to an early movie ("The Shape of Water") at the ArcLight, then had dinner at The Musso and Frank Grill on Hollywood Boulevard. We loved the movie, which gave us a lot to talk about over our divine dinner.
We always like going to this classic Hollywood restaurant. The service is great, everyone is excited to be eating at this landmark and the food is really good!

We were seated in the perfect spot for people watching...a booth in the center aisle, opposite the parking lot entrance. People walked right by our table on their way into the place, ditto, on the way out! We even saw my old radio boss, Larry Mantle with his lovely wife, Kristin and their son, Desmond!

Of course, we started with cocktails. Larry had the famous martini and I had a Pimm's Cup. Delicious. We split a Caesar salad and wolfed down all of that gorgeous sourdough bread.

Larry ordered the Grenadine of Beef and I had the Bouillabaisse Marseillaise which was chock full of  shrimp, lobster, mussels, clams and cod. There was even a tiny bit of yummy soup at the bottom of the bowl.

Chocolate mousse cake topped with vanilla bean ice cream and the obligatory birthday candle was shared for dessert.

Musso's is such a happy, welcoming place. Everyone is friendly, especially the maĆ®tre d'. He didn't stop smiling the entire time we were there!

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and want to return for the famous flannel cakes for breakfast one of these days!
