This historic restaurant is one of the city's oldest and most famous establishments. Opened in 1908, the grill is perhaps most famous for its cameo in Dashiell Hammett's Maltese Falcon. Over the years, it has become a favorite for locals and visitors who enjoy the great steaks, fresh seafood, salads and pastas as well as the excellent service and period furnishings and memorabilia.
