Welcome back to StarWatch, Eater’s handy feature for discovering where celebrities wine and dine in Los Angeles. Here’s a rundown of exactly where the Hollywood types are hanging out, for those interested in the lifestyles of the rich and famous.
August 3, 2017
— Beyonce and Jay-Z aren’t letting the recent birth of their twins prevent them from date nights. A few weeks ago, the Malibu-residing duo were spotted at their local Nobu, and just last night Jay and Bey dined at Sushi Park, the second-floor strip mall gem in WeHo.
— Veep star Julia Louise-Dreyfus stopped in to Culver City’s Maple Block Meat Co. with her family for a barbecue-filled dinner of brisket and chicken.
— Halle Berry celebrated the premiere of her new movie Kidnap at Beauty & Essex, taking over the upstairs balcony patio to mingle over grilled cheese tomato soup dumplings, salt and vinegar fries, and tuna poke wonton tacos.
— After dinner at Catch last night, Faye Resnick made it very clear to TMZ that she would not comment about the release of O.J. Simpson. Hopefully she at least had a decent meal at one of LA’s scene-iest rooftop spots.
July 27, 2017
— Divergent and War Dogs star Miles Teller celebrated his sister’s birthday at Tao this week, with tipsters writing in to report an over-the-top dessert display presented in her honor.
— Self-proclaimed coffee addict Lucy Hale got her caffeine fix at Alfred on Tuesday, keeping cool with an iced coffee from the highly Instagrammable shop.
— Perpetual headline maker Justin Bieber may have let down fans when he canceled the rest of his tour dates, but at least the teenage heartthrob proved he has good taste by addresses the controversy to TMZ while he headed in to lunch at Sugarfish Beverly Hills.
— Another day, another diva sighting at Nobu. This time it’s Mariah Carey at Nobu West Hollywood, who enjoyed what was presumably a sushi-filled meal after helping kick off Lionel Richie’s most recent tour.
July 21, 2017
— Jamie Foxx sure does love Beauty & Essex, as the Baby Driver star visited the restaurant three times this week to dine on the singer’s favorite dishes, the kale and apple salad and the bone-in-ribeye.
— Newly engaged couple Quentin Tarantino and Israeli singer Daniella Pick visited longstanding West Hollywood hot spot Madeo last weekend. Chances are high that the duo dined on pricey plates of pasta, like the signature $36 bolognese.
— Nobu Malibu is quite the place for celeb stalking, as this week’s sighting is Cindy Crawford and her lookalike 15-year-old daughter. With such stunning views and LA’s balmy evenings, it’s no wonders the stars are flocking to the westside haunt.
— If the name Jeremy Meeks doesn’t ring a bell, perhaps his famed mugshot will, as the formerly incarcerated model quickly rose to fame after photo gave him the nickname of “world’s hottest felon.” Apparently Meeks is lapping in the attention, recently dining at the paparazzi-hounded Catch with Topshop heiress Chloe Green.
July 13, 2017
— Last night, Beyonce made her first public appearance since giving birth to twins with husband Jay-Z. The R&B overlords chose Nobu Malibu for the big night out, staying at the restaurant with ten security guards until 11 p.m.
— It was a full-blown High School Reunion, well, reunion at Beauty & Essex, where Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Tisdale celebrated Tisdale’s 32nd birthday with Thai-style deep-fried shrimp, oysters, filet mignon, and avocado, lemon, and espelette toast.
— Ben Affleck is officially back on the market after he and Jennifer Garner filed for divorce earlier this year. How does the A-list actor woo new love interest SNL producer Lindsay Shookus? According to TMZ, with dinner dates at Giorgio Baldi and morning-after coffee at Starbucks.
— Daughter of Lisa Rinna and Harry Hamlin, Delilah Belle Hamlin, is on a tear celebrating her recent high school graduation. So where do the young Hollywood-types celebrate such a momentous occasion? Craig’s, of course.
June 28, 2017
— It was a big weekend for Khloe Kardashian, who celebrated her birthday with boyfriend Tristan Thompson of the Cleveland Cavaliers at Tao in Hollywood on Sunday. The duo dined in a private skybox and enjoyed chicken satay and spicy shrimp.
— Nobu Malibu is known for having a heavy influx of celebs looking to see and be seen at one the LA’s best restaurants for outdoor dining. Kourtney Kardashian’s former flame Scott Disick was recently spotted leaving the hot spot yesterday, getting into his car that was parked in a handicapped spot. Tsk tsk.
— Disick wasn’t the only paparazzi magnet at Nobu Malibu this week, as loud-mouthed chef Gordon Ramsay also stopped by on Monday with his daughter in a $200,000 Ferrari.
— Studio City’s Kiwami recently played host to Jenna Tatum, who ate a lunch that likely included the Katsu-ya group’s signature sushi dishes.
— The BET Awards selected ROKU and neighboring restaurant Blind Dragon to host its pre-party feeding stars like A$AP Rocky, J. Cole, and Lana Del Rey a menu that included Blind Dragon’s Wagyu and Japanese fried chicken sliders and ROKU’s avocado cucumber roll and popcorn shrimp tempura with miso glaze.
June 22, 2017
— Warriors point guard Steph Curry and food superstar Ayesha Curry chose Boa Steakhouse in Santa Monica last week on June 15 to commence what became a big night out, dining on filet mignon, brussels sprouts, and lobster mac and cheese before heading out to a Drake-hosted fete.
— Drake has a strong loyalty to The h.wood Group’s hotspots, and chose Delilah to celebrate the Golden State Warriors NBA championship title. Celebrities like Kendall Jenner, Jamie Foxx, and Wiz Khalifa joined Drake and the Currys at the party that featured chicken tenders, ‘The Burger’ sliders, kale salad, shrimp cocktail, and Drake’s favorite dessert at Delilah, Kendall’s Slutty Brownie.
— After showing up rather conspicuously in a gold Bugatti, Jamie Foxx dined at Beauty & Essex after the Future concert, eating the restaurant’s signature grilled cheese, smoked bacon, and tomato soup dumplings.
— Apparently Bella Hadid hasn’t quite reached peak stardom, as the middle child of the Hadid clan was initially turned away from The Nice Guy on Tuesday night. The doorman apparently didn’t recognize the former Weeknd flame, who blocked her face as paparazzi snapped the rather awkward encounter outside of the Hollywood hotspot. Thankfully for the model, Bella was eventually allowed entry.
