Another ~Bernie Sanders~ sighting, this time for a late-night meal at Albany’s China Village. According to this post on Chowhound, “The owner sighed that Bernie didn’t know much about Chinese food, and didn’t like spiciness. Among other things, they had fried rice, those great lamb dumplings, and Mongolian beef…I forgot that they also ordered beer-braised duck, so that’s a +.” Pics and more here.

A tablehopper reader let us know the one-and-only ~Gwyneth Paltrow~ was at Tacos Cala on Cinco de Mayo (to quote her oft-used hashtag, it’s a #Gspotting)! She is in town for her fab goop pop-up shop (through May 22nd) at the former Xanadu Gallery on Maiden Lane (designed by Frank Lloyd Wright!) and to promote her new book, It’s All Easy.

Last weekend, ~Dev Patel~ of the recently released film The Man Who Knew Infinity (with Jeremy Irons)—about Srinivasa Ramanujan, the math genius—was spotted with other cast and crew (including Stephen Fry and Devika Bhise) at Starbelly for brunch. The posse feasted on pizzas, the fried chicken po’boy, challah French toast, and more.

The one and only Dude, ~Jeff Bridges~, was in the house at Penrose sporting “long, luxurious gray hair and a full beard!!” He was in town for a benefit concert last Friday at Freight & Salvage. The Dude abides.

Handsome Brit ~Hugh Laurie~ was spotted in Foreign Cinema last night. Ends up he’s in town to shoot a series on Hulu, Chance, so we’ll probably see more of him. And how timely, his new miniseries, The Night Manager, kicks off tonight on AMC.
