You can’t really get away from celebrities here in LA. If they’re not having their picture taken at the park, they’re at the farmers’ market buying winter squash, or causing a traffic jam when they have a surprise wedding. If you’re into that sort of thing and you want to see, feel, or be part of the celebrity world you can spend your money in one of their restaurants and hope they pop by. Or if you’re just looking for a fun atmosphere and decent food, you can head to any of these celebrity-owned restaurants. (Apparently, if you’re a celebrity investor and you want to open a restaurant it’s best to have a one-word name.)

  1. Just wondering…has anyone actually seen a celebrity lift a finger at a celebrity-owned restaurant?!

  2. Sam says:

    Maybe they have and maybe they haven’t. Bottom line is that they fronted cash to open and keep these places open, lend their name to press and visit occassionally…which keeps people employed. Think about it.

  3. Albano says:

    Mulberry Street Pizza is barely ok.

  4. lurker says:

    Years ago, there was a restaurant “The Lobster Barrel”, owned and operated by Alan Hale, Jr and he was on-site all the time.
