How does the guy who has everything celebrate his birthday? Why, over a nice meal with his loved ones… and out of the public eye. Jay Z held a private gathering at L.A. restaurant République on Saturday (Dec. 3, 2016) to celebrate turning 47, and only the rapper’s closest friends and family made the cut!

Prior to the special gathering, tarps were hung outside the restaurant to ensure prying eyes wouldn’t disrupt the festivities. But arriving attendees hinted at the exclusivity of the dinner.

Kelly Rowland was all smiles when she made her way into the French restaurant wearing a fedora and wrapped in a flowing silver trench coat.

Also on the guest list was Beyoncé (of course), her mother Tina Lawson and Tina’s husband Richard Lawson. The latter pair stopped by Buffalo Wild Wings for lunch before helping the Tidal founder celebrate the occasion.

“When your walk on the wild side is having some hot wings on a Saturday afternoon at a place called ‘Wild Wings,'” she playfully captioned a video of herself describing the outing.

Hopefully she liked the French cuisine better!

Happy Birthday, Jay!
