Zac Efron was in a New York state of mind when he dined at BLT Prime recently.
The Paperboy actor and six friends enjoyed dinner together, with Efron eating a rib eye steak and drinking Johnnie Walker Blue.
Dressed casually in a black T-shirt and jeans, Efron and his friends were at the restaurant for two hours, just “catching up,” an onlooker tells PEOPLE.
Efron’s next film, Are We Officially Dating?, follows three New York bachelors who make a pact to have as much fun as possible.
