Food may well be the "new rock" but sometimes the worlds collide, as they did recently when Peter Bjorn & John dined at Hollywood's old school meat-and-martinis hang out, Musso & Frank. Over at a fun blog called, appropriately, Food is the New Rock, we learn that PB&J not only went to M&F, but they had their meal with a side dish of Twitter, and hence, here are the 5 Things Peter Bjorn & John Want You To Know About Musso & Frank Grill in L.A.

1. They make a very good trout. 2. Charlie Chaplin dined there all the time.

3. Greta Garbo discussed a script there.

4. Marilyn Monroe sneezed there.

5. It might be the oldest restaurant in the world.

Here's what we want you to know about Musso & Frank: They've recently the restaurant celebrated over 90 years in business. The restaurant has long been associated with showbiz, as many a writer, director, and star has sidled into those booths in the dim dining room to talk scripts, deals, and scandal over a steak and a stiff drink. There, as we said a few years ago, "Everything old is New Again."

Plus, Musso & Frank is one of the "12 Places Where You Can Live Like a 'Mad Men' Character,", and, in 2006, departing LAist Editor Carolyn Kellogg included drinks there as part of a Hollywood outing trifecta among her "Top 10 L.A. Things You'll Miss."
