There are so many celebrities who own restaurants. I don't know how they're able to make time for them in their super busy schedules, but somehow, they manage. I'm actually a huge foodie so I love discovering new places! The crazy thing is that I've actually been to two of the venues on this list without knowing who they were owned by! Check out some of the celebrities who own restaurants and let me know where you're excited to go.
When he's not busy being dreamy on the movie screens, Ryan Gosling can be found at his Beverly Hills establishment, Tagine. As a co-owner of this Moroccan-themed restaurant, he must be proud; Tagine has had rave reviews over the years for having such yummy cuisine. If you live in the area, what are you waiting for? Go check the place out! Ryan's just one of many celebrities who own restaurants.
Alright New Yorkers, this one's for you! Robert De Niro's Tribeca Grill needs to be added to your restaurant bucket list... that's a thing, right? The place has been around for over 20 years and has a famed list of investors/partners, including everyone from Bill Murray to Chris Walken to Sean Penn! I actually had lunch there once and I would definitely give it 5/5 stars!
This is actually really amazing... In Bon Jovi's restaurant, Soul Kitchen, you'll find no prices on the menus. Why? Because there's a "pay-what-you-can" policy. Paying for your meal is considered a donation! If you can't pay, you can work out an arrangement to volunteer at the restaurant. It's located in Red Bank, NJ!
These brothers own a burger joint, Wahlburgers, in Massachusetts! They actually had to go through quite a process to acquire the 'Wahlburgers' name because a Tom Wahl was using the name for his own Rochester restaurant. The duo eventually struck a deal with Tom to use the moniker at their restaurant.
Eva Longoria and celebrity chef Todd English are the owners of Beso in Hollywood, Calif. The restaurant is attached to Kiss Night Club and offers a Latin approach to classic steakhouse cuisine. This hotspot is known more for its Exotic Adult Juice Bar than its food. Check out their cocktails at besohollywood.com.
Sex & the City's Mr. Big owns The Cutting Room in NYC! Opened since 1999, celebrities such as Norah Jones, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kid Rock, Vanessa Carlton, and Sheryl Crow have performed there. I actually went there once for a concert and enjoyed some VERY delicious food! If you're a New Yorker, I highly recommend checking this place out!
Gavin DeGraw co-owns The National Underground with his brother, Joey! The venue offers live music at both its New York and Nashville locations. I actually haven't been to its NYC location (yet) but I'm VERY excited to go soon and try it out! I love it when restaurants pair yummy food with live music - what else could you ask for?! You can check out the menu and show schedule on thenationalunderground.com.
Well, there you have it. These are just seven out of MANY celebrities who own restaurants. Who knew they had time to manage these types of things?! Have you ever been to any of these restaurants/bars? Which are you excited to try out?
