This week, New York celebrities recovered from Thanksgiving festivities by going light on the dining and a bit heavier on the drinking. Alicia Keys celebrated an album release at the Box, Bill Clinton got drinks at the Lamb's Club, and Justin Bieber fit two dinners into one night out this weekend. All the deets (and just a few eats) straight ahead in our weekly roundup of celebrity dining.
The Box: Alicia Keys held her album release party at the burlesque club last weekend. Keys, Swizz Beatz, Beyoncé, Jay-Z, and Justin Timberlake gave standing ovations to the acts that included a reverse striptease and something involving jump ropes. [NYDN]
Café Carlyle: A horde of New York TV stars were at the classic New York spot Monday night. Sue Simmons, Regis Philbin, Jill Zarin, Joan Collins, Hoda Kotb, Rosanna Scotto, and others came out in support of jazz musician Steve Tyrell. [Page Six/NYP]
Greenhouse: Sandra Denton, better known as Pepa of Salt-N-Pepa, celebrated her 48th birthday at the Soho club. Pepa and friends, including Queen Latifah, drank Dom Perignon and danced to a DJ set that featured a 30-minute block of Salt-N-Pepa songs. [NYDN]
No. 8: Bobby Cannavale and Rose Byrne got close at the Killing Them Softly after-party Monday night. They were spotted making out earlier in the evening and left together around 11 p.m. Jennifer Carpenter, Amy Adams, Harvey Weinstein, Sean Avery, Josh Lucas, Francisco Costa, and Chris Noth were also in attendance.
