Sting makes a splash at Eddie V's West Ave and goes for the oysters
The British rocker was so intrigued by the bivalves on the menu that he insisted on a close-up, in-the-kitchen inspection of the various oysters. He was clearly impressed, ordering a large plate that he washed down with gin and tonic. Continuing his odyssey in the seafood hotspot, Sting ordered a salmon entree and a few glasses of vino.
Joining Sting at the table were guitarist and frequent collaborator Dominic Miller (who has recorded with Phil Collins and The Pretenders among others) and drummer Abe Laboriel Jr., on loan from Paul McCartney. The trio was joined by Valerie Sarofim and mutual friend Alyssa Waltze in from Malibu.
The feast went on for nearly three hours giving Eddie V's diners an eyeful of the celebs dining at a center table in the main dining room. Most kept their distance during dinner but when Sting and friends departed, he was swarmed by fans. We are told that the rocker handled the attention with grace.
