If chefs are the new rock stars, where does that leave the rock stars? They're not all exactly putting down their guitars and picking up spatulas just yet, but today's successful recording artist is expected to own a palette of other businesses in order to build their empire. Restaurants are vanity projects for some and true passions for others, and the proof is always in the pudding. Peruse our picks, from a red-sauce hang for the Little Monsters to a steakhouse with a decidedly country twang.

  1. This was not the original location of Southern Hospitality. It opened on the UES of Manhattan, then this location opened. The UES spot eventually closed.

  5. The use of the words "Rock Star" are thrown around like so much garbage anymore. I'd HARDLY call that gaga thing, the country "music" dude, Timberlake and Ms. Knight "Rock Stars". More power to them for their restaurant endeavors, though.
