Beckham Dine with Lionel Messi: On Thursday, David and Victoria Beckham enjoyed dinner with Lionel Messi at Gekkō, a Miami restaurant co-owned by Bad Bunny and restaurateur David Grutman. Victoria shared photos from the night on Instagram, including a group shot of the Beckhams, Messi and his wife Antonela Roccuzzo, David and wife Isabela Grutman, Inter Miami teammate Sergio Busquets and girlfriend Elena Galera, and Inter Miami co-owner Jorge Mas and his wife Aleyda Mas.

The star-studded group was seen dining together and leaving the restaurant at the same time late Thursday evening, where they were greeted by fans and paparazzi.
Gekkō, located in Miami’s Brickell area, was established by Bad Bunny and Grutman in summer 2022. The Japanese steakhouse has a U-shaped sushi bar, velvet-draped booths, and art installations, including a dragon mural overlooking the dining room. Its menu combines aspects of a traditional steakhouse with Japanese cuisine, including raw offerings of sushi and sashimi. One of the menu’s highlights is Bad Bunny’s favorite lobster fried rice along with olive-fed filet mignon and chilled oysters with watermelon granita.
Bad Bunny chose to launch his first restaurant in Miami because “the culture reminds me of home.” Meanwhile, Messi, who won the 2022 World Cup playing for Argentina and recently signed with Inter Miami, collaborated with Hard Rock on a new sandwich called “Made For You by Leo Messi.” It features thinly pounded chicken cutlets with melted provolone cheese, an herbed aioli, fresh arugula, and tomatoes.
In a statement, Messi said of the sandwich, “I can’t wait for my fans all over the world to get a taste of one of my childhood favorites that still makes me feel at home, wherever in the world I am.”
