Lady Gaga invests in Upper West Side restaurant
She sure seems to be “Gaga” for meat.
Lady Gaga, who dressed in slabs of raw beef at the MTV Video Music Awards this year, can add restaurateur to her resume now that she’s an investor in the Upper West Side eatery Vince & Eddie’s.
The Grammy Award winner is investing with her parents – although she’ll stay behind the scenes as a silent partner.
Vince & Eddie’s, an Italian-American restaurant on West 68th Street near Central Park West, did a promotion with the singer when her Monster Ball Tour stopped at Madison Square Garden in July.
“We’re close friends with the family,” said Peter Dee, whose family owns the eatery.
He said Lady Gaga, whose real name is Stefani Germanotta, last visited the restaurant before her tour’s kick off. Her parents, who reportedly live in the neighborhood, have been regulars there for a few years.
So does the “Poker Face” singer dine on anything special when she’s there? “She doesn’t have just one thing she likes,” Dee said.
Reps for Lady Gaga could not be reached for comment.
Her mother, Cynthia Germanotta, told W Magazine her daughter likes the restaurant because “it’s very homey and private.”
