“Still the oldest restaurant in Hollywood”

The Musso & Frank Grill’s history is as rich and colorful as Hollywood itself. Opened in 1919 by entrepreneur Frank Toulet, who joined forces with Oregon restaurateur Joseph Musso and brilliant French chef Jean Rue, the restaurant quickly became known for outstanding service and culinary excellence. On September 27, 1919, The Hollywood Citizen ran an announcement about the opening of Frank Toulet’s new restaurant, Frank’s Café at 6669 Hollywood Blvd. In time, Toulet partnered with restaurateur Joseph Musso. As the owners of the new Musso & Frank’s Grill, they hired French chef Jean Rue, who created the menu — much of which remains unchanged even today. The pair sold the restaurant in 1927 to two Italian immigrants, Joseph Carissimi and John Mosso, who years later moved The Musso & Frank Grill next door to 6667 Hollywood Blvd., where it still stands. Musso's exclusive, storied Back Room opened in 1934. Guarded by a discerning and austere maitre d’, the Back Room was a legendary private space reserved for the Hollywood elite. Eventually, the lease on the Back Room expired. Today, the restaurant’s New Room holds the Back Room’s original famous bar, light fixtures and furniture from 1934. As the years have passed, so too have the beloved generations of Musso’s. The great chef, who led the kitchen for more than 53 years, passed on his torch as well. But the generations have kept the dream alive — first by Carissimi’s son, Charles, and his wife, Edith, and Mosso’s daughter, Rose, and then by Mosso’s granddaughters. Today, Musso's is owned and operated by John Mosso’s three granddaughters and their children. The generations may have changed, but one thing never has — our family’s uncompromising dedication to delivering the renowned service and fine cuisine that first made Musso’s famous.

Order a classic Gibson from one of the tuxedoed waiters. Congrats: you just stepped back in 1940s Hollywood.
