Ocean’s Eleven (2001)

In Steven Soderbergh’s ensemble heist remake, “Ocean’s Eleven,” after being released from jail, Danny Ocean, played by George Clooney, meets Rusty, played by Brad Pitt.  The two drive to Musso & Frank Grill, the oldest restaurant in Hollywood, founded over 100 years ago.  The two can be seen driving to the parking lot with a camera mounted on the back of the car.  The interior pops up twice in the film.  First when Danny lays out the plans for a Vegas heist to Rusty, then again when Danny questions if ten men is enough, or if they need one more.

The restaurant has popped up in numerous films, including “Once Upon A Time In… Hollywood,” “Ed Wood” and “Swingers,” as well as the TV shows “Mad Men” and “Bosch.”
