In town for business — and pleasure! George Clooney is currently in NYC filming his upcoming movie Money Monster with longtime friend Julia Roberts, but took some time out of his busy schedule to have a dinner date with his wife Amal Alamuddin.
A source tells Us Weekly that the couple grabbed a bite to eat at the beloved French restaurant Cafe Boulud in the Upper East Side on Friday, Feb. 27. Afterward, Clooney, 53, was spotted sipping cocktails with his British lawyer love at the Carlyle hotel bar — and a certain Beatle showed up, too! "Paul McCartney joined them for a while," says an onlooker.
The Oscar winner plays Lee Gates in the Jodie Foster-directed thriller Money Monster, and will be in town for a couple of months while filming. In between shooting, he also ventured out to Taverna Kyclades, a Greek restaurant in Queens, with longtime friend Bill Murray on Tuesday, Mar. 3.
"George loves Bill," a second insider tells Us. "Bill's able to get serious too and really enjoys his chats with George. It's a real bromance there." (Murray attended Clooney's star-studded Venice nuptials to Alamuddin, 37, back in September.)
Clooney and the St. Vincent star, 64, noshed on chicken kebabs and a fish dish during their outing. "It was a friendly and happy lunch. Nobody really bothered them but it was fantastic having them here," the source tells Us. "George and Bill were laughing throughout."
The restaurant even posted a photo of the actors on their official Instagram account. "Bill Murray loved us so much he brought a friend…" the caption read Tuesday. "#georgeclooney #billmurray #tavernakyclades #seafood #greekfood #freshfish #tavernakycladeseastvillage."
