Chrissy Teigen and John Legend Support Struggling New York Restaurant by Renting It for Date Night

The Lower East Side's Panna II has had its fair share of celebrity fans with actress Sarah Hyland growing up near it and actress Sophie Turner praising its food to be 'The BEST.'

AceShowbiz - Chrissy Teigen and John Legend took date night to a whole new level on Saturday, March 6 by renting out one of New York's struggling restaurants - just for themselves.

The stars took over the Lower East Side's Panna II so they could enjoy a safe night out without their kids during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Teigen shared snaps on social media, telling fans and followers she and Legend wanted to give a struggling Big Apple business a boost, "we rented out this restaurant and supported this lovely lower east side establishment!"

Last week, New York lawmakers agreed to reopen indoor dining at no more than 35 percent capacity.

Panna II has its celebrity fans - actress Sarah Hyland grew up near the restaurant and Sophie Turner once wrote, "The BEST food" after dining out there.

John and Chrissy arrived in New York with their kids earlier in the week and marked their return to the Big Apple on Friday by visiting a city firehouse and hanging out with first responders.

The married couple's date night came just days after she helped her stylist Alana Van Deraa's 28th birthday. Returning to her roots for the special occasion, the former model and cookbook author dressed up as a Hooters waitress.

The 35-year-old showed off her get-up in an Instagram clip along with a message that read, "back to my roots. was a hostess at the hoots! the shorts, they have changed!!!!" In response to her shoutout, Hooters wrote back, "Just say the word and you've got your job back."
