Musso’s on Wilshire:

And, Frank’s was on Hollywood Blvd.

Frank Toulet’s restaurant was on Hollywood Blvd. since 1919. When John Musso joined him they moved next door – where the restaurant is still located.

I recommend sitting at the counter and sipping the perfect martini while watching pure artistry as your steak is grilled medium rare.

    It is an institution, alright. It’s the place I always recommend to visitors in the area.

      When I was a youngster I loved the flannel cakes and that’s the only thing I’d ever order. Now that I’m older it’s the steak, creamed spinach, and baked potato – really old school and still delicious.

    Sounds like a good place to go for Lunch after a long walk in the hills with Vickie Lester!

    They have some horrendous reviews on Yelp. $22 for spaghetti and meatballs. I guess for a martini and a memory it’s OK.

      It’s all about the memories there…

  4. Been looking for info on the original Musso’s before they joined Frank’s. Glad to see these photos. Do you know the address or at least the retaliative vicinity of where Musso’s was on Wilshire?

      Hi Robert,
      Musso’s was located at 6300 Wilshire Blvd.
      By the way, what a lovely site you have!

      • Thanks Vickie. That’s extremely helpful. I’m working on a post for the 75th anniversary of the 1937 premiere of Disney’s Snow White at the Carthay Circle Theatre. One of the promotional things the studio did was to build a Seven Dwarfs’ cottage along Wilshire, and in one of the press photos, Musso’s is seen in the background. With your help, I now know exactly where the cottage was situated. Much appreciated! 🙂
