The X-Men star stopped by N.Y.C. restaurant The Little Beet for a hearty, low-carb lunch on Monday — and Tuesday! The midtown Manhattan restaurant is across the street from Radio City Music Hall, where Jackman has been rehearsing to host Sunday’s Tony Awards.
Wearing a bike helmet, black T-shirt, sunglasses and a backpack, Jackman told employees he loved the food and happily snapped photos with customers and staff — and even with Little Beet chef Franklin Becker.
