The brand-new Cecconi’s, with its tony views and Soho House connection, was the place to be last night — especially since everyone’s pal Bill Murray randomly showed up.
The Post reports that Murray just happened to be walking by when he saw the opening night festivities, which included lobster spaghetti and lots of drinks. He sat on the patio chatting with guests, while other celebs like actor Matthew Rhys and British soccer player Gary Lineker mingled around, too.
It’s starting to be Murray’s thing to assist with Brooklyn openings — the funnyman tended the bar the first night at his son’s 21 Greenpoint. He reportedly used the opportunity last night to talk up the bar to partygoers.
This is the Italian restaurant’s first NYC outpost, after starting in Venice and expanding to Mayfair, West Hollywood, Miami Beach, Berlin, Barcelona, and Istanbul, among others. It’s also the first restaurant open to the public from the team behind members-only Soho House.
