10 popular NYC nightlife spots featured on DeuxMoi

@DeuxMoi is like a real life Gossip Girl, as she keeps track of all the celebrities found around the world through Instagram stories. Her loyal followers (or tipsters) send her tips to alert her to any A-lister events, which she then shares on her page, often featuring special teas like a new celebrity couple out on a night out. It usually happens randomly in big cities, especially in restaurants in New York City. We’ve combed through DeuxMoi’s archives to find the hottest NYC restaurants to try for romantic dinners this winter.

It’s one thing to see a celebrity sitting a few tables away from you, but what if you could try the pasta they ordered back? Many of the stars go to the hot spots around Manhattan for dinner, so if you visit one of these restaurants, look for someone who looks familiar. Chances are high that you’ll find a VIP, but the food and ambiance in these inspired places should make you feel like yourself, with top-notch food ranging from Italian, French, or Japanese cuisine. Eat in the footsteps of icons like Taylor Swift and Beyonce with DeuxMoi restaurant recommendations in NYC.

American Bar, West Village

According to DeuxMoi, celebrities from Bella Hadid, John Mayer, and Hillary Clinton love the American Bar in the West Village for its classic American version. “The American Bar is what a kid eats at a restaurant if he goes to a dance school in Switzerland and has eight savings,” is how @theviplist put it the TikTok. Imagine pigs in a blanket, juicy fillet steak, and a mountain of ice cream sundaes.

Carbone, Greenwich Village

Carbone is one of NYC’s most exclusive restaurants, and it requires reservations months in advance. It is the most suitable dish for special occasions, but it is often done by A-listers like Rihanna or the Kar-Jenners. @whosthatgrlitsjesss posted a little vlog about her visit, complete with espresso martinis, tortellini al ragu, spicy rigatoni in vodka sauce, and vintage Italian ambiance.

@justjoshinya_ shared their visit to this West Village Italian trattoria on TikTok, saying, “DuexMoi made me do it.” In the video, they dined on a delicious plate of high-end dishes such as parmesan-topped chickpea fritters, dreamy Cacio e Pepe, Tonnarelli pasta, olive oil cake, and tiramisu.

ABC Cocina, where Reese Witherspoon and Zoë Kravitz have been seen for lunch, is another DeuxMoi favorite. TikToker @sabrinaechow loves the mushroom pizza and peekytoe crab toast.

Bar Pitti is another popular bar in the West Village, and has a down-to-earth bistro feel. You’ll recognize him by his emerald green mask and special board found on @taniaxo98’s TikTok, serving up gnocchi, veal polpettine, pappardelle, truffle spaghetti, and more Italian staples. Keep in mind Bar Pitti does not accept reservations and is cash only. Also, Beyoncé approved it.

Pastis, Meat District

Pastis is a popular French dish in the Meatpacking District for famous celebrities like Anna Wintour, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Prince Harry. @thenycritic shared his oysters, mussels and steak frites spread on TikTok. However, he says “the star of the show is the burger,” so consider adding it to your order.

Charlie Bird, South Village

@morgan.raum vlogged a night at Charlie Bird in the South Village, a favorite spot for stars like Drew Barrymore, Jay-Z, and Jessica Seinfeld. Charlie Bird’s restaurant is delicious, with an Italian influence, serving a variety of dishes including Long Island seafood, salty pasta and grilled chicken.

Le Crocodile, Williamsburg, Brooklyn

Check out Brooklyn’s Le Crodile for A-list approved French cuisine, which has served celebrities like Jennifer Lawrence and Emily Ratajkowski. The laid-back ambiance is perfect for a romantic date over oysters, tartar, and duck, as posted by @thenycritic.

@amandaschweizer stopped by Gemma at the Bowery Hotel in NoHo to check out all the buzz, considering celebrities like Aubrey Plaza, Selena Gomez, and Dakota Johnson have been spotted dining there. It’s a rustic Italian trattoria, serving dishes like seafood risotto, grilled Branzino, NY strip steak, and hearty gourmet pizzas.

Taylor Swift, Cara Delevigne, Lenny Kravitz, and Gwyneth Paltrow have all been spotted dining at this exclusive sushi spot in SoHo. When you go to a cozy sushi restaurant, try the tuna or sweet mochi like @tiffany.elizabeth.
