Kim Kardashian leads the business in Staten Island after a series of low key dates with Pete Davidson

Staten Island business owners have seen a surge of interest thanks to low key visits of Kim Kardashian with local boyfriend Pete Davidson.

While they may have hoped to stay out of sight with their unpleasant outings, their dates to pizzerias and movie theatres prompted an influx of famous tourists hoping to catch a glimpse of them, sit down and eat what they ate since appearing last year.

There are now lines out the door at Campania, the Italian restaurant where the couple shared a pizza, salad, and jug of sangria in October, and the local movie theater they visited in December was booked in her honor.

Says servers in Campania New York times Patrons now regularly ask for the star during dinner service.

I was like, “Kim isn’t here today, but check back in tomorrow.” It took me a few times to realize they weren’t talking about my friend Kim, who works with me here.

“They were talking about Kim Kardashian,” waitress Nicole Prause said.

The two visited Campania in October last year, and entered through the back door. Kim was staying at the Ritz-Carlton in Manhattan—just a week after her SNL appearance, that’s how the couple met.

So many people ask us about Kim, we’re now making stories. I wasn’t even here when Kim was here, but now I’m saying, “Oh, yeah, we had coffee. It was great,” added Pressy.

Campania’s director, Umberto Guzman, said business boomed after their visit became known to the public.

‘It was crazy.’ The phone was ringing, and we had long queues every day.

“People wanted to sit on the roof all winter because that’s where I sat, but I had to explain to them that the roof was closed because it was cold,” he said.

However, he’s not entirely happy with the flow of attention.

I don’t want streaks anymore because it’s annoying to my clients.

“We’ve been busy since we opened last April because our food and service are great. We don’t need it,” he said.

In December, Pitt and Kim visited the Atrium stadium cinemas with Scott Disick.

Since then, the small, boutique cinema has been flooded with people hoping for movie tickets.

Recently, a fan rented out the entire stage and paid for popcorn for all of his guests because he wanted to throw a party where Kim and the House of Gucci watched in December.

Someone called a few weeks ago, someone from out of town, saying he wanted to come to the theater Kim visited.

He rented out the entire theater to his friends and paid for everyone’s popcorn and food.

You can’t be older than Kim Kardashian. The owner, Jesse Scarola, said the boss could be here, and it wouldn’t be any bigger.

When Kim, Pete and Scott visited in December, they were spotted on their way to the stage.

By the time the movie was over, there was a crowd outside.

That same night, the couple visited another Angelino restaurant. They snapped a selfie with the restaurateur, who posted it on Instagram shortly after.

The photo has received more than 7,000 likes – far more than any other photo in the restaurant’s feed.

We have never had such an offer. People started coming from Brooklyn, the Bronx, Queens, and South Jersey, everywhere.

Local politicians say the sudden interest is helping to revive the local economy after a tough few years of COVID.

But some residents are wary of all the attention.

One woman said she hoped Kim wouldn’t spoil the town’s best-kept secrets, like her favorite beach.

If Kim went there, I’d have wanted a picture with her, but then I wouldn’t want the crowds that followed. I want my beach to remain undiscovered. She’s nice, quiet, not sloppy, Robbie Hernandez, the teacher, told The Times.

Kim and Pete were announced last year, shortly after their Saturday Night Live guest appearances.

Since then, he has discontinued the comedy show that made him famous.

It is unclear what he plans to do now.

Kim lives mostly in Los Angeles, where she films The Kardashians for Hulu with her famous family, and where she shares custody of her four children with rapper Kanye West.
