Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, a.k.a. Lady Gaga, knows her Italian chow. Last autumn she invested in Vince and Eddie's, an Italian-American restaurant in the neighborhood where she was raised on Manhattan's Upper West Side.

It didn't go well. Last month there were reports that the restaurant was temporarily closed; Zagat has it marked as closed. Last week, former employees sued for labor law violations.

Still need Gaga chow? Eater has a Lady Gaga dining guide.

Or you could avoid labor disputes, surprise closings, and the chance that your steak's been part of a dress by watching Lady Pasta.
