Gore Vidal 1925 -2012

The passing of Gore Vidal, writer, playwright, politician and commentator, saddens those who remember him from Musso and Frank. He was a regular customer since the 1940’s and entertained fellow guests and staff with his humor and stories. In recent years, he was served by Sergio Gonzalez, his favorite waiter.

Mr. Vidal once remarked that entering Musso and Frank “is like stepping into a warm bath.”

Rest in Peace

    I didn’ know Mr. Vidal personally, but enjoyed his stories, ideas, take on the world….a humorous rapscallion in the finest and gentlest meaning of the word…….

    You will be missed…

    One of last of the great literary lions – and in fact a gentleman as well – sophistication and panache all the way . . . He is missed . . .

    Such a great loss to us all… RIP Gore Vidal. I have been wanting to take my boyfriend there and I guess it’s time. Possibly we can celebrate 50th at Musso and Frank Grill in honor of Gore Vidal.
