We recently dug up the stars’ backstage demands and believed that that was as close as it got to being in an actual star-studded green room. And now to satisfy our stalker self, we stumbled upon a few of Hollywood’s famous celebrity-owned restaurants. Because this might be the closest we get to dine with them.
Owned By: Richard Gere
Gere’s upstate NY Inn looks like a scene from a movie scene. The place boasts of crisp exteriors on the outside and two restaurants on the inside – The Barn and Campagna. Campagna being the fancier of the two is home to an elaborate Italian menu, while the former serves up excellent breakfasts and snacks.

Situated in New York City, the place is a mix of an elaborate and uber chic club and a raw sports bar with a lot of gold teamed with wooden baseball bats.
Owned By: Hugh Jackman
Jackman and wife met a local coffee farmer while on a trip to Ethiopia, which sparked the idea for The Laughing Man foundation. The place is not just any other place to score the best flat white in town (which is also the actor’s pick), it stands to serve a cause. The foundation aims to support local coffee farmers through education and entrepreneurship.
Owned By: Justin Timberlake
Timberlake’s restaurant is the answer to all your Southern food cravings. Think BBQ baby back ribs, lobster mac and cheese, waffles, barbecues and all things deliciously classic. There’s no reason why you wouldn’t drive Five Hundred Miles to eat here!

Located at the Big Apple’s Upper West Side, Joanne Trattoria is the quintessential Italian restaurant. Technically owned by the singer’s father, the place serves up pizzas, pastas and some meaty recipe, some of which belong to Gaga’s family.
Owned By: Eva Longoria
Owing to her Latin roots, Longoria presents a Hollywood-based restaurant that offers a Latin-inspired menu complete with a few steakhouse classics. The place is done up with a fair amount of panache oozing from the swanky booths and plush couches.

The NYC-based restaurant offers exciting new American dishes on the menu coupled with an exquisite wine list. The place is one of the critically acclaimed many food ventures.
