The most famous arena in the world – Madison Square Garden – isn’t the only Celebrity Row in the Big Apple. When the boldfaced A-Listers aren’t watching Knicks superstars Carmelo Anthony and Derrick Rose courtside, seems they’re hanging at another famous NYC institution – Old Homestead Steakhouse in the Meatpacking District…

The View’s Whoopi Goldberg and actress Melissa Joan Hart at separate tables.
Baseball Hall of Famer and former beloved Mets catcher Mike Piazza, who now owns an Italian soccer league team, talking up soccer with baseball fans that only wanted to know his take on the Mets resigning free-agent superstar Yoenis Cespedes.

Talk about a power lunch, NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio with influential Brooklyn Pastor, The Rev. A.R. Bernard. Hizzoner asked owner Marc Sherry if he still had a menu for the restaurant’s $50,000 Thanksgiving dinner. Just curious to see if the menu was worth it, the Mayor said.

Ja Rule celebrating his 2017 Australian “urban sounds” tour before it was even announced. Words out now that he will be performing in Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide and other major cities with Ashanti and Eve.
Seems like Old Homestead Steakhouse becoming the go-to steakhouse for rockers, rappers and pop stars. Not too long ago, Axl Rose and AC/DC band members including Angus Young celebrated their end-of-tour at the meatery.

The parade of musicians that recently dropped in…
Slash with his family.
Metallica’s James Hetfield loving every bite of his Gotham rib eye.
Dutch DJ Tiesto surrounded by bodyguards while devouring a porterhouse.
Members of Chicago (the band) and Earth, Wind & Fire ordering every cut on the menu.

Tracy Morgan trying out some new material on bar patrons. He had them in stitches.
“Harry Potter” star Lord Voldemort – that’s what some fans were shouting out to actor Ralph Fiennes as he sat at a table studying a script in between bites of his filet mignon on the bone. He seemed amused being called by the popular role he played in the Potter flicks.

Retired and beloved Knicks superstar Patrick Ewing devouring a porterhouse for two unassisted. Fans loved it when he predicted the Knicks would be a pretty good team with acquisitions Derrick Rose, Joakim Noah and Brandon Jennings.
