Want to eat out like the stars and sip on the same cocktails Jennifer Aniston does when she goes out on a date night with fiancé Justin Theroux? It’s perfectly feasible if you find yourself hungry on either coast, most notably New York and Los Angeles. These two celebrity-filled cities have some of the world’s best restaurants that inevitably attract top-notch celebrity couples.
In the Big Apple there are plenty of spots that attract today’s ‘It’ couples like Blue Hill in the heart of the West Village. Jennifer and Justin have dined there as well as a host of other notable couples like the Obamas — perhaps with a bit more security detail than the others. For those looking for fun rather than high-end cuisine, many celebrities are often spotted at Serendipity 3 on the Upper East Side when they’re sneaking their sugar fix. Power couples like Jay-Z and Beyonce as well as Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively have been known to show up from time to time to taste their famous frozen hot chocolate—a menu item staple.
Another favorite of the Obamas is Spiaggia in their hometown of Chicago. This fine-dining Italian restaurant; famous for its gnocchi and black truffle sauce, has also waited on TV queen Oprah Winfrey and long-time partner, Steadman Graham. Other star-studded celebs celebrated there with Winfrey after the last taping of her long-running show a few years back.
In the land of Los Angeles and its surrounding neighborhoods, celebs are spotted everywhere from Scarpetta to Casa Vega or The Ivy among others. Younger celebrity couples like Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher, and Meghan Fox and Brian Green are often spotted singing along to karaoke and chowing down on Mexican food paired with margaritas at low-key Casa Vega.
So next time you’re on the road or decide it’s a date night of your own, check out The Daily Meal’s roundup of some of the most beloved celebrities’ favorites.
