Musso & Frank Grill: 100 years of Hollywood history

Hosted by

Musso & Frank Grill will celebrate 100 years in business this September. The restaurant first opened on Hollywood Boulevard before Hollywood had a Walk of Fame or even a Hollywood sign. Its mid-century opulence has been preserved as if in amber.  

When Quentin Tarantino shot a scene there for his new film “Once Upon A Time in Hollywood," set in 1969, he didn’t have to change a thing.

We speak with the restaurant’s CFO and proprietor, who descends from one of the landmark’s early co-owners.
