The group feasted on Chef Ralph Scamardella’s new Italian menu at a table in the center of the dining room.
Brian Baumgartner from The Office dined with a friend nearby, while at another table comedian David Spade, along with his mom and friends enjoyed the Chicken Parmagiano then headed to LAVO’s expansive terrace for cocktails. Producer Andre Harrell was seen dining, as was Luke Perry.
Upstairs in the nightclub Jay-Z, Johnson and friends held court at a VIP table in front of the DJ booth where Eric D Lux was spinning. Standing up often to check out the crowd, Jay-Z drank Voss water and his own Ace of Spades Champagne while Johnson stuck to Grey Goose and pineapple cocktails. When D Lux played Soulja Boy’s Turn My Swag On, Jay-Z jumped up to dance and insisted he play the entire song. Giving props to others who were dancing, his group was so impressed with one of LAVO’s go-go dancers they tipped her $100. Also spotted, Deal or No Deal stunner Claudia Jordan popping by the table to say hello to the group.
