Every night is date night when you’re Amal Clooney (née Amal Alamuddin) and George Clooney! The photogenic pair stepped out for yet another stylish dinner date this week, as they were seen leaving the famed Babbo Ristorante in New York City after enjoying a late-night bite.
Lawyer Amal, 37, showed off her long, slim legs in satin pumps and a black-and-white minidress with sheer, fluttery sleeves to balance out the short hemline and keep spring chills at bay. The elegant barrister drew attention from an awestruck gentleman who held the door open for her – and by the looks of it, he was completely charmed by the gorgeous brunette! (Can you blame him?)
George, meanwhile, was dapper in a midnight-blue suit paired with a coordinated button-down shirt and shiny oxford shoes.
Located in lower Manhattan, Babbos features high-end Italian fare from prestigious chef Mario Batali and is one of several high-profile spots that the foodie couple have frequented in recent months.

Kappo Masa, Patsy's and Café Boulud have also hosted the glamorous pair, who have been getting to know the Big Apple's vibrant restaurant scene as Amal and George plan to base themselves in New York for the foreseeable future.
George, 53, is busy filming his new movie, Money Monster, there, while London-based Amal recently joined Columbia University as a visiting faculty member and as a senior fellow with the law school's Human Rights Institute.
"It is an honour to be invited as a visiting professor at Columbia Law School alongside such a distinguished faculty and talented student pool," Amal said in an official statement. "I look forward to getting to know the next generation of human rights advocates studying here."
Amal's impressive curriculum makes her the ideal candidate for the job. She has served as a senior adviser to Kofi Annan and represented WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange in extradition proceedings. She has also handled numerous cases before the International Criminal Court and the European Court of Human Rights.
While she is lecturing, husband George will be at the nearby Kaufman Studios in Long Island, filming the Jodie Foster-directed movie, which also stars Julia Roberts and Dominic West. George stars in the thriller as financial TV personality Lee Gates, who is held hostage by a viewer who lost all of his money following a bad tip from Lee on his show.
