A Long Time Friend of Musso & Frank

Actress Jane Withers died on August 7, 2021 at the age of 95. Jane was a long time friend of Musso’s and will be missed by her fans, friends and family.

She enjoyed her 88th birthday in a  party hosted by Mayor Jimmy Pappas in the New Room. Jimmy also held a private luncheon for Jane at the the Studio Commissary at 20th Century Fox, where she was once under contract and starred in many films.

Jane always ordered the creamed spinach and the cream of tomato soup when she visited Musso’s.  We raise a glass to Jane!

    Happy Birthday, Musso and Frank! 100 years!! My family has been going there since my grandfather first walked through the door shortly after they opened in 1919. Five generations of Surtees’ have called the place home and celebrated many a family milestone there. My grandfather, my dad, myself, my son and now my oldest grandson call all call ourselves regulars.
    Remembering back to my childhood we’ve had wonderful relationships with so many of the Musso family: Jesse Sanchez, Mrs. Carrissimi, Jean Rue, Gregory, Gus, Wilbert, Jack, Eppie, Manny F, Reuben, Alfred, Nick, Domingo, Juan, Sergio, Manny, Craig, Alex and eo many others who made us feel at home, lightened our load and created so many special moments for us. Thank you all, for you are Musso and Frank.

    Dear Musso and Frank,
    My family has been coming to your restaurant since we moved to LA! My Father was a magician who got a TV series called “McHales Navy”, and I believe it was Ernest Borgnine who brought us here for our first meal! Since my folks have passed on, I’ve been coming steadily, and was surprised to learn not only will you be 100 years old on September 27th, but my Father’s birthday was also Septemeber 27th, and he was born in 1919! All I know is you are still my favorite place, and hope to be a part of your centennial celebration somehow!
    Long may you reign!
    Forever yours,
    Saratoga Ballantine
