Britney Spears and her fiancé, Jason Trawick, are staying at the Mondrian SoHo for the week to enjoy a New York City Christmas vacation.
Wednesday, the newly engaged couple enjoyed a night out on the town for a girlfriend's birthday at the hot restaurant, The Darby.
Tucked into a private booth, Britney, sticking to water, enjoyed many of the West Village eatery's specialties, prepared by Chef Alex Guarnaschelli.
Possibly to make the special guest feel at home, Lady Rizo and The Darby band serenaded her with a cover song tribute of Britney's hit song, "Toxic." After dinner, the couple headed back to their hotel hand in hand.

A source close to the singer tells PEOPLE that an engagement is imminent for the pop star and longtime boyfriend Jason Trawick, 39, who sources say has picked out a ring.

Britney Spears has been in and out of love through several relationships over more than a decade – and, even now, just days away from her 30th birthday, she understands that there's plenty more to know.
Asked by the U.K.'s Stylist what she's been reading recently, the pop star mentions The Mastery of Love, a meditation on love and relationships written more than a decade ago by Mexican spiritualist author Don Miguel Ruiz.
"It's basically an analysis of love and what it means to love," Spears says. "It goes through all the different aspects of love – who you are as a person, knowing yourself before you even attempt to love anyone else, that sort of thing. It's really well-written and thought-provoking."

In the video for her single "Criminal," Britney Spears shares passionate scenes with her real-life boyfriend more than two years, Jason Trawick – and things seem to be going equally well off-screen, the video's director tells PEOPLE.
"It's an interesting situation, filming intimate moments like that between two people who, off-screen, would be sharing moments similar to that," says Chris Marrs Piliero, who also directed Spears in her video "I Wanna Go."
"Off camera, Jason is a very cool, chill guy," he added. "Which goes really well with Britney because she's so much the same … she's a really sweet girl that, when the cameras aren't rolling, she's just chilling out. They would just [hang] out together."

Yes, he was looking at jewelry – just not of the engagement variety.
Online reports that Britney Spears's boyfriend and former agent, Jason Trawick, is planning to propose are false, a rep for the singer tells PEOPLE.
Trawick, 39, was spotted meeting with high-end jeweler Pascal Mouaward in Los Angeles Monday afternoon, sparking rumors that they were discussing diamonds for the pop star.
"There is no truth to that report with regards to engagement rings," a rep for Spears said in a statement. "However, Jason was there to discuss other matters with Pascal, but nothing relating to him personally."
