The StarletStar Sightings in Restaurants (no photos please)
The left-leaning Vice President ~Joe Biden~ was at Left Bank Brasserie in Menlo Park on Saturday at lunch. He was in town attending Stanford’s graduation, with his family and whole security detail. Like a good politician, he worked the room after lunch, shaking hands and taking pictures with all the other diners.
Swedish attractive person ~Alexander Skarsgard~ was spotted at Bi-Rite Market on 18th Street (kind of amazing he fit in there) on Saturday. Apparently, he and the cast of The East were in town promoting the film, though no word on if he was in the company of reported lady friend (and co-star) Ellen Page or not.
Top Chef Season 4 contestant ~Richard Blais~ was in town over the weekend, and according to a tweet, he hit up the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market and paid a visit to the Big Gay Ice Cream Truck at the Cultivate Festival. We also wonder if he had any meetings about his rumored upcoming Bay Area restaurant project?
Seinfeld actor ~Jason Alexander~, who plays the neurotic and hilarious George Costanza, was spotted at the Starlight Room on Thursday night. He’s in town directing When You’re in Love, the Whole World Is Jewish at the Marines’ Memorial Theatre. He was there with a group of 10, and they stayed for two hours. When he left, he told the general manager that “the club has it going on.”
Hot on the heels of their live show, a couple of Stones rolled around town last week. First up is front man ~Mick Jagger~, who dined at Acquerello on May 7th. He and his two British friends were conservatively dressed, enjoyed the Parmesan budino, sea bream, lamb shank agnolotti, and the flourless chocolate cake. And, in true rock star form, they were the last ones at the place. Rock on, Mick.
