In September 2020, a follower on Instagram sent me the first real-time celebrity sighting my account received directly. It says something like “Just saw Hugh Jackman on Bleecker Street”, with a picture of Hugh Jackman simply standing on the sidewalk.I’m the anonymous creator behind Deuxmoi – the pop culture rumor mill on Instagram that people compare to real life gossip Girl – So, I guess it was a natural progression for the account to start posting actual celebrity sightings.
My first post where I “discovered” Jackman standing on a New York sidewalk was shared thousands of times. Within a week, I started getting tips of celebrity sightings from all over New York and Los Angeles. The sightings soon began to include restaurants where celebrities ate out. Cut to almost two years later, and I think Deuxmoi’s followers have seen just about every celebrity dine at restaurants around the globe. My Instagram account has become an encyclopedia of restaurants where celebrities like to eat. Reminder: One of New York City’s most haunted celebrity restaurants, Carbone, was deliberately omitted from the map. At this point, it’s a well-known fact that this is New York City’s most popular Italian restaurant. and specification. Kim Kardashian, Rihanna, Jennifer Lopez, John Mayer, Kanye West and Julia Fox are just a few of the celebs my followers have seen eating macaroni at Carbone.
So, in true Deuxmoi “SPOTTED” fashion, without having to wait until Sunday to drop, I’ve compiled a list of NYC celebrity haunts. The celebrities listed for each of the 13 restaurants are based on actual tips from followers of Deuxmoi’s Instagram account.
