Glitterati Gastronomy: 2 NYC Restaurants for Spotting Celebs

Looking for where the rich, stylish and famous dine while in NYC? Check out these hotter-than-hot spots.

A wave of fashion-forward A-listers took to these top-tier NYC restaurants during Fashion Week. (Yes, stars and supermodels eat, too . . . sometimes.) Dine, see and be seen at these haute spots.

Jean Georges

Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten is a celebrity in his own right, and his namesake resto draws serious star power (and we’re not just talking about the three Michelin stars). Emma Watson is a regular; and supermodel Tyra Banks has been spotted in the white dining room (designed by posh Danish architect Thomas Juul-Hansen), surveying the French-, American- and Asian-influenced menu. 1 Central Park West, btw W. 60th & W. 61 sts., 212.299.3900

Indochine

Indochine

A French-Vietnamese, colonial-chic vibe has kept this East Village staple hot (even tropical) since its opening in 1984—but you won’t find Big Brother here, just big names. Fashion mavens Mary-Kate Olsen and Sarah Jessica Parker (with Matthew Broderick) are known to bask in the romantic atmosphere during stylish date nights. Designer Jason Wu even shot his Spring 2014 ad campaign in the dining room.  430 Lafayette St., btw W. 4th St. & Astor Pl., 212.505.5111
