Rihanna Stopped to Help Restaurant Staff Clean Up After Girl’s Night Out
On Thursday night, Rihanna enjoyed a girl’s evening with her friends at Michelin-starred restaurant Caviar Russe in New York City, and someone at the scene said the billionaire beauty mogul stopped to help staffers clean up. The group had asked the restaurant to stay open past their closing time so they could grab something to eat.
The source told Page Six that Rihanna was accompanied by six friends at the caviar bar where they enjoyed sashimi and champagne until two in the morning. The singer’s close friend Melissa Forde had shared some snaps this week that looked like they were taken that evening on her Instagram Stories, showing them both out and smiling late at night.
For dinner, Rihanna wore over-sized jeans and a large No Limit Records jersey in blue and red, finishing the casual look with some dressier lace-up pointy-toe heels. As the night wrapped up, she was “seen helping the waitstaff clean up and push the bar stools back into place since she stayed so late.”
The musical artist has been in New York the past few weeks and made a few appearances since the birth of her first child, a baby boy, with boyfriend A$AP Rocky in May. She was recently photographed stepping out hand-in-hand with the rapper on their way to Richie Akiva’s new members-only club, The Ned. Someone at the event spotted the couple and said they seemed “chill and definitely happy,” adding that Rihanna “looked amazing.”
On that date night, she wore a vivid green ensemble that included a leather miniskirt and a silk shirt in the same shade that offered a peek of the lacey black bra underneath. She wore it with open-toe strappy sandals, sunglasses, and a chain link necklace.
