The Leopard at des Artistes, a sophisticated Italian restaurant located in the same address as the former icon of the Upper West Side Café des Artistes, is as beautiful and elegant as its predecessor. Sam Sifton, a former New York Times restaurant critic, once wrote that The Leopard at des Artistes is aimed at those seeking “fame through power” and not the other way around, which is why Hollywood legend Steven Spielberg and James Bond himself, Daniel Craig, have probably been seen dining here for dinner. Like apparently any other Keith McNally restaurant, Morandi is also a celebrity favorite. Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden were seen here asking for a very expensive bottle of wine, Sarah Jessica Parker is a regular, and Saturday Night Live student Maya Rudolph is also a fan of Morandi's rustic Italian food.
Enjoy dishes like hand-rolled spaghetti with lemon and parmesan and Sicilian-style meatballs with pine nuts and raisins at this popular West Village spot. Il Buco is undoubtedly one of the most charming restaurants in New York City. Its beginnings as a rustic antique store resonate throughout the decor, with primitive American country tables, candles, 26% kerosene lighting, handmade chandeliers and antique furniture. Comfort French food in an intimate setting, a survivor of the 1980s continues to make Tribeca's most loved bistro menu.
Just as the environment of the Odeon benefits from the intersection of the aesthetic sensibility of the early 20th century and modern gastronomic utensils, too. Keith McNally waved his magic wand and led this old stalker to new glory. The elegant bistro now seats 85 people in a classic setting defined by the same cohesive and subtly transporting aesthetic that has made other McNally companies, such as the Odeon and Balthazar, deceptively attractive. Celebrities enjoy good food and simple pleasures as much as anyone.
So, there are plenty of restaurants in New York City where you can relax with your food. As proof of this, we have found the 10 restaurants that celebrities are obsessed with. The Odeon's impressive menu is filled with French comfort foods. It includes everything from striped steak, French fries and yellowfin tuna to steak tartare and French onion sauce.
Built and inaugurated in the 80s, it is a bistro that has a 20th-century aesthetic, making it very informal. This impressive restaurant features exclusive red leather stools, a large bar and aged mirrors. However, the setting is only part of what you'll enjoy at this bistro-style restaurant. Menu options include candied red onion, grilled potatoes, braised potatoes, steak with French fries or the Balthazar hamburger, among other things.
Whether it's Kim and Kanye or Beyonce and JayZ out on a date night, The Spotted Pig is known for often seating the famous and fabulous. The oysters and grilled cheese at this gastropub are sensational, but critics strongly recommend that you try the hamburger. Pete even dined in one of the Italian restaurant's outdoor yurts with his new girlfriend Kim Kardashian. One of their favorite restaurants is Lilia, which has become a meeting place for several celebrity couples, such as Anwar Hadid and Dua Lipa, and Chris Meloni and Mariska Hargitay (although they're not a couple unless you delve into some fan theories).
If you want to pair your meal with a celebrity touch, these restaurants attract the rich and famous better than any other restaurant in New York City. The pop culture Instagram account, which has been compared to the real-life Gossip Girl, breaks down where celebrities dine all over the city. It is famous for the food it prepares, and the low price of its food is proof that celebrities who only enjoy the best will want to try it, especially in private groups. La Esquina (The Corner), a former corner delicatessen store shrouded in what looks like a roadside taqueria, houses perhaps the most secret restaurant in New York (with a semi-hidden phone number), hidden downstairs behind a door marked only for employees.
If you visit this bistro restaurant in the heart of TriBeCa, you'll walk where the celebrities have been. Going back almost two years, I think Deuxmoi fans have seen almost every celebrity dine at restaurants around the world. The restaurant has attracted a wide variety of stars since it opened its doors this year, such as Michael Kors, Bill Murray and more. So, in true Deuxmoi “SPOTTED” style, and without having to wait until my fall on Sunday, I compiled a list of celebrity spots in New York.
The celebrities who make the list for each of the 13 restaurants are based on real advice from followers of Deuxmoi's Instagram account. At first glance, SAINT is an upscale restaurant in the East Village that serves American cuisine. Located in the former Four Seasons complex, this Japanese brasserie, also run by the Carbone Uncles, but less popular, is one of the most impeccably designed restaurants in downtown Manhattan. Jean-Georges Vongerichten's passion for contemporary American cuisine converges into a spectacularly attractive restaurant space at the famous ABC Carpet %26 Home store.
