Beyonce and Jay-Z’s Dinner Date at Battery Park in NYC (PHOTOS)

Beyonce and Jay-Z left their 9-month-old daughter Blue Ivy at home with a babysitter Saturday (Oct 20) and spent the evening together dining in New York City’s Battery Park neighborhood.

As a part of their date night, Hip-Hop’s royal couple had dinner at Battery Park’s Gorgio Ristorante, where the pair were spotted sitting outside on the deck overlooking the sunset before moving indoors to enjoy their meal.

According to restaurant staff, the casually dressed couple sat right in the midst of the other diners, before leaving the building accompanied by a small team of bodyguards.

In an interview with Cleveland radio station Z107.9 this week, President Obama spoke on his friendship Beyonce and Jay-Z, and how he was able to offer Jay some parental advice:

I’ve gotten to know these guys over the first several years. They’re good people. Beyonce could not be sweeter to Michelle and the girls. So they’re good friends.

We talk about the same things I talk about with all my friends. I made sure that Jay-Z was helping Beyonce out [with the baby], and not leaving it all with Beyonce and the mother-in-law.
