When they’re not pissing in kitchen mop buckets or throwing tantrums when their massive entourage doesn't get seated (Justin Bieber we’re looking in your direction), celebrities can add a harmless but fun element to your evening out in London.
Whether you prefer the old-school British way of ignoring the fact that Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones are sat behind you (as Hot Dinners once did) or go crazy tweeting out the fact you’re having dinner beside Desmond Tutu (yes, that’s us too) you may be interested to find out whether the stars are eating when they’re in London.
Every time we see a mention of a celebrity in a London restaurant we’ll include it here, so you can work where to star spot in town.
