1919 was an exciting year in America. The victorious Doughboys were coming home from Europe and the United States was taking its place as a world power for the first time.
Hollywood was already becoming synonymous with cinema and movie making. And an interesting restaurant had opened on Hollywood Blvd. called The Musso & Frank Grill. Now its 2014 and this amazing restaurant remains one of the best in the City.
James Woodin and I, representing the Southern California Restaurant Writers, were there to present Sergio Gonzales with his medal for being named Server of the Year in recognition of his 42 years of service with Musso & Frank. We add that longevity of staff abounds at this restaurant and serving our lunch was a waiter with 30 years at the restaurant.
Musso & Frank Grill is located at 6667 Hollywood Blvd, in Hollywood and is open Tuesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. On the web at www.mussoandfrank.com.
