The Ultimate Guide To Dining Like The Kardashians

One of the biggest challenges of modern life is keeping up with the Kardashians. Almost every single aspect of this family's existence is just absurdly fascinating. But even if we follow their social media presences and their reality show empire religiously to make sure we don't miss a thing, most of us can't afford to copy their shopping habits, their beauty routines, or their wardrobes. One thing we can do, though, thanks to this guide, is dine like the Kardashians (checking account permitting, that is).
We compiled a list of the restaurants that the Kardashian-Jenners haven't been able to get enough of over the course of the past year. That way, we can all eat like reality TV royalty — or maybe even spot one of them in real life. Ahead, we explore some of the spots where they've stopped for a bite.
Café Du Monde This 24-hour cafe in New Orleans is one of Kim Kardashian-West's (and Saint's) favorites — in a jetting across the country just to get her hands on one of the legendary beignets kind of way.
In October, Kim Kardashian West celebrated her 37th birthday by having an intimate dinner with close friends and family at a Middle Eastern restaurant in Los Angeles called Carousel. The restaurant is known for it's "meza" which, according to its website, is the Lebanese word for appetizers. At Carousel, it's popular for groups to order several of the 60 meza items to share from the Chef de Cuisine and co-owner Rose Tcholakian's menu.
Based on a Snapchat video posted by Kim Kardashian the night of her party, that's exactly what she and her guests did. On her table were small plates of humus, falafel, and much more. It seems like the family is a fan of Carousel because eating the traditional Middle Eastern cuisine helps them to feel connected with their Armenian heritage. On Kim's birthday, when the cake was presented at the table, her sister Kourtney even excitedly shouted, "Armenian style!"
On episode 6 of Keeping Up With The Kardashians' 14th season, Kim, Khloé, and their friend Jonathan Cheban, aka Foodgōd, decided to go on an eating spree of iconic New York foods, and of course, that included New York-style pizza. Kim specifically requested that the gang go get a meal from the NYC institution Joe's Pizza. While there, she got a big slice of cheese.
Joe's opened its first location in Greenwich Village in 1975, and since then, it has expanded to several other locations throughout the city. The pizza served there is "old-school, real deal New York Pizza," and like Kim, you can get it by the slice or buy whole pies.
According to multiple Yelp reviews, this steakhouse is well-known in Cleveland for its upscale atmosphere, which is good since the Kardashians all showed up decked out in furs. Like with a shocking number of the restaurants this reality TV family chooses to dine at, Red, the Steakhouse has more than one location — two in the Cleveland area, one in Miami, one in Pittsburg, and one in Indianapolis. It also offers private dining which may have been one of the most attractive features for them. That, and Chef Peter Vauthy's very well-seasoned steaks.
Of all the restaurants on this list, this spot might be the one we'd most like the visit. Unfortunately, it's probably also the place we're least likely to actually get to dine at. Kris Jenner visited Hotel du Cap with boyfriend Corey Gamble while vacationing in the South France this past July. The Eden-Roc patio sits right on the edge of the Mediterranean Sea, allowing guest can soak in a breathtaking view of the Lérins Islands while sipping rosé. According to The Daily Mail, that's exactly what Kris and Corey did.
Kris posted a photo of her Hotel du Cap meal on Instagram, and it showed that she and Corey ordered the watermelon salad, which was prepared inside an actual wedge of watermelon, and a fresh tomato and mozzarella salad. The Daily Mail reports they also enjoyed salmon and avocado sushi.
While in Miami this past June, Kylie Jenner was spotted eating dinner out with Travis Scott. The Life of Kylie star and her rapper date dined at Bodega Taqueria y Tequila in South Beach. Bodega serves authentic Mexican street food and has an effortlessly cool food truck-inspired interior. According to People, Kylie ate a chicken quesadilla from Bodega and Scott ordered an assortment of tacos. And, while both drank Mexican orange sodas with their meals, the spot also offers an impressive array of cocktails.
Providence Restaurant In March, Kim and Kanye took a timeout from their busy lives for a romantic date night at Providence Restaurant in Los Angeles. The spot is known for its award-winning seafood from Chef Michael Cimarusti. According to E!Online, when Kimye dined at Providence, they were seated in a private room with romantic lighting and ordered the tasting menu, which includes spiny lobster with black truffle and brown butter.
The Grill On The Alley During the current season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, the family gathered for dinner in a private room at The Grill On The Alley to celebrate matriarch Kris Jenner's birthday. Located inside the Promenade at Westlake, the well-known steak house serves classic American food, and it's a special favorite spot for the family's eldest sister, Kourtney.
Last January, Kourtney and Scott Disick were spotted having dinner with their kids at The Grill On The Alley after seeing Star Wars: The Force Awakens together. And, in October 2015, the oldest Kardashian sibling treated her kids Mason and Penelope and niece North to lunch at the Thousand Oaks location of the award-winning chain before going pumpkin picking. It seems like it's a good spot for families with kids, and since there are locations all over the country, you can easily emulate the Kardashian clan through dinner at The Grill no matter where you live.
