hollywood Katharine McPhee boa steakhouse jacket

Katherine McPhee stepped out looking effortlessly smashing on her dinner date with her husband Nick Cokas and friends at BOA Steakhouse on Monday night.

The former Idol star will display her singing chops in the new Stephen Spielberg-produced musical drama alongside Debra Messing and Anjelica Huston as part of NBC's mid-season schedule in 2012.

It's also good to see the singer still going strong with her hubby of three years -- who is also 19 years her senior!
