I recently paid a visit to Lucky’s Steakhouse, one of many few locations the place Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have been noticed in Montecito, California, since they moved there in July 2020.
The small Santa Barbara city is known for having plenty of famous residents — together with Oprah Winfrey and Ariana Grande — however nearly everybody I spoke to had by no means seen the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
However there was one exception. A waiter at Fortunate’s instructed me he had been on the restaurant on the identical evening as Markle and Harry, and mentioned the royals had been “completely regular.”
Markle and Prince Harry were seen at Lucky’s in October 2020 whereas they had been on a double date with Katherine McPhee and David Foster.

McPhee and Markle are childhood mates, whereas Prince Harry and Foster have grow to be “like father and son” lately, McPhee instructed Access Hollywood in a Might 2020 interview.
Markle and Harry held fingers and wore masks as they made their technique to the restaurant.
However the well-known foursome did not go for non-public seating throughout their three-hour double date. The waiter identified precisely the place they sat within the out of doors eating space with everybody else.
It is no shock that the royals selected Fortunate’s for his or her dinner. It is simply essentially the most well-known restaurant in Montecito, and will get loads of big-name company. “Iron Chef” star Cat Cora has even mentioned that Fortunate’s New York strip steak is one of the best things she’s ever eaten.

The waiter instructed me that there are celebrities at Fortunate’s on a regular basis, and that “most are very nice.”
“Just a few are impolite after having a few drinks,” he added.
However for a restaurant with a rotating door of stars, Lucky’s is surprisingly laid-back and calm. There aren’t any flashy decorations, and the dishes are comforting and unpretentious — however nonetheless completely scrumptious.
After I requested my first waiter which menu objects had been hottest with Fortunate’s well-known company, she waved off my query.

“They’re simply common individuals who take pleasure in meals,” she mentioned with amusing. “It is actually about what you want.”
Her response was much like what everyone in town told me after I requested about their high-profile neighbors.
“There’s like an unstated rule, we deal with them like everybody else,” mentioned one lady who labored in a Montecito boutique. “It is very nice.”
