A Taste Of History
If the United States had its very own menu, it might look like the 700 item mega-menu at Barney’s Beanery. Sure, the restaurant’s classic French Onion Soup harks back to another country and there are more than a few mainstays from south of the border, but most of the food served at Barney’s is quintessential American through and through.

Not surprisingly, during its first century as a Southern California landmark and entertainment capital mainstay, Barney’s Beanery has become a film, television and music industry star in its own right. Guest appearances for the restaurant over the years include TV’s “Columbo” (though only one episode was actually filmed on-site, the beloved Lieutenant enjoyed many a bowl of Barney’s chili on a soundstage recreation of Barney’s during the series run), Oliver Stone’s “The Doors,” Brian dePalma’s “Body Double,” the Val Kilmer feature, “Real Genius,” and the Farrelly brothers’ Matt Damon comedy, “Stuck on You.”
