It’s more than just good looks that Gossip Girl beauty Blake Lively (Serena van der Woodsen) and gorgeous husband Ryan Reynolds have in common. The September 2012-wedded pair definitely share a penchant for all things dessert! In fact, the newlyweds celebrated the premiere of Ryan’s new animated movie, The Croods, by throwing a sugary brunch for 25 of their closest pals! (How sweet?)
After attending the film’s March 10 NYC premiere earlier that morning, the pair hit Sugar and Plumm restaurant on the Upper West Side, where they met up with a big group of friends. On the menu: lemon ricotta pancakes, ‘Crunch Toast,’ and grits, all washed down with milkshakes. (How do they keep their rockin’ bods? The words “no fair” come to mind...)
For dessert — yes, there was dessert after! — the entire group indulged in the eatery’s signature ‘Earthquake in a Fishbowl’ dessert. What’s that you ask? Oh just cheesecake, key lime pie, Brooklyn blackout cake, butterscotch pudding, vanilla, chocolate and salted caramel ice cream and whipped cream topping. Sweet enough for you?
While we were just left off the invite list for Blake and Ryan’s little fiesta (right, guys? Don’t let it happen again), they’re not the only celebs making the hip resto their second home. Other famous fans of Sugar and Plumm include Katie Holmes and daughter Suri and Brooke Burke and her kids. With a super-indulgent menu like that, no wonder they love it!
Now, if you’ll excuse us, we need to go for a preemptive run.
