Happy Retirement to Manny Felix

Our best wishes go out to Manny Felix, who retired from Musso and Frank in June, 2011 after 37 years of service.

As a waiter and captain, Manny was a fixture in the Old Room for many years and will be missed by his many regular customers. Over time, Manny entertained his customers with stories and  magic tricks at the grill counter. Generations of  fans will miss his presence.

Best wishes, Manny!

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
