Musso & Frank is always a fun place for a martini (their martinis are famous). Just a few blocks away from the Roosevelt, Musso's is great for dinner, steaks, fish, and old-school Hollywood style. The place opened in 1919, and you’ll feel it immediately when you walk in. Numerous films were shot there. If you can’t get a table, don’t fret; the bar and counter usually turn over frequently.
From the site: "Before the iconic Hollywood sign was built, The Musso & Frank Grill was here. And for premieres and finales, through awards seasons and writers’ strikes, we’ve been here. Passed down through three generations, Musso’s is a Hollywood staple — known as much for its commitment to tradition as it is for its superior food and classic ambiance. In fact, Musso’s looks the way it did when Charlie Chaplin dined here, and our menu is so esteemed — so classic — it’s gone virtually unchanged for nearly 100 years. Step in our door — and into another time."
