Leonardo DiCaprio Channels Gatsby; Rihanna Gives a Lap Dance at Pink Elephant
The city was transformed into a de facto Gatsby party this week: Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, and their celebrity pals partied hard. Ashton Kutcher, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Jerry Seinfeld all ended up at the Beatrice Inn; Katy Perry and Robert Pattinson ventured to Trump Soho's lounge; and Rihanna gave a "seductive lap dance" to Sean Kingston at Pink Elephant Club. This, and more, in our weekly roundup of celebrity dining.

Capitale: A security guard failed to recognize Jamie Foxx during Facebook's Gig-It launch at the Bowery Spot. Rick Ross, T-Pain, Ne-Yo, Sean Kingston, and "a group of older 60-year-old banker types" were also in attendance. [Page Six/NYP]
Cipriani Wall Street: Chelsea Clinton told the crowd at Tuesday’s Food Bank for New York Can Do Awards that she can't imagine life without Mario Batali, since she introduced her husband to the Clintons at Babbo. [Page Six/NYP]
The Darby: Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire got the green light to celebrate The Great Gatsby premiere at the appropriately swanky bar on Wednesday. On Friday night there, Cameron Diaz wore red cowboy boots, while Jillian Michaels pretended to be relevant, "blowing fireballs by lighting shots in her mouth behind the bar." [Page Six/NYP]
Delmonico’s: Whoopi Goldberg was given a tour of the restaurant, igniting speculation that the View star will be opening a place of her own. In any case, she ordered the Delmonico steak, lobster Newburg, and baked Alaska. [People]
Pink Elephant Club: Rihanna and her entourage bumped into Sean Kingston at the West Village club. A "spy" says: "It looked like they were giving him a seductive lap dance." Good to know it was the seductive kind. [Page Six/NYP]
