The beautiful Dania Ramirez dined at Sugar Factory American Brasserie (http://www.sugarfactory.com/) last night with a small table of friends. The HBO “Entourage” actress munched on spinach artichoke dip, New York strip steak, asparagus and roasted chicken. Following dinner, she indulged in a red velvet sundae and ‘Fluffer Nutter’ peanut butter milkshake. After dessert, Ramirez and friends picked up a few sweet treats: sour gummy worms, gum balls, Couture Pops and plenty of blue raspberry sour belts at the Sugar Factory flagship store.

Also dining at Sugar Factory American Brasserie was funny man, David Spade. Spade enjoyed shrimp cocktail and four-cheese pizza during his meal and ordered Sugar Factory’s ‘Going Bananas’ goblet cocktail to sip on.

Sugar Factory American Brasserie is an American take on a traditional French brasserie, serving delicious cuisine all day, and all night, along with an oversized retail store and signature Chocolate Lounge.
