The Darby Opens Early for Beyoncé's Birthday
The Darby, the supper club from Butter's Alexandra Guarnaschelli, has not yet opened to the public, but nevertheless the 100-seat restaurant hosted Beyoncé's birthday party last weekend.
Jay-Z apparently filled the space with orchids and brought out a six-layer birthday cake for his wife. No word on what they ate from Guarnaschelli's planned old-school, continental menu, though we would take her oyster-stuffed steak over cake any day.
