January 16, 2007

Jeremy Piven was spotted outside the recently relocated Fior d'Italia. According to a tablehopper reader, it looked like he was just wrapping up lunch, and had the black chauffeured SUV ready and waiting.

So, if you were Gary Danko and were gonna throw a party for your big 5-0, this is what it would look like: a buyout of supperclub, with 170 guests kicking it in their socks (many sporting bhindis) and digging the scene (and the five-course meal). What guests, you inquire? How about Renee and Carl Behnke of Sur la Table, Connie and Andy Debbane from Zarzuela, the Ritz Carlton's Jean-Pierre Dubray, Cameron and Gerald Hirigoyen of Piperade and Bocadillos, NOPA's Laurence Jossel and Allyson Woodman, Chantal and Hubert Keller of Fleur de Lys, Tor and Susan Kenward of Tor Kenward Vineyards, Ed and Mary Etta Moose of Moose's, La Folie's Roland and Jamie Passot, Carol and John Sebastiani of Sebastiani Vineyards, Delfina's Craig and Anne Stoll, Augustin Huneeus of Quintessa winery, and Joanne Weir. You can check out pics here (be forewarned, there are 757 of 'em).

Okay, it really was the week of power gourmands: Alice Waters was spotted at Delica rf-1 over the weekend (yes, she was wearing a hat), and Ruth Reichl had dinner at Kokkari (no, she was not wearing a wig, those days are over.)

Shelley Long aka the apple of Sam Malone's eye was spotted at Allegro Romano. Uh, Cheers!

And my favorite sighting for some time: Marc Jacobs was in Lulu last week.
