Jackpot on star sightings this week. First, Sting was all over town. He was spotted having lunch at Balboa Café, where he ordered the crab cakes, and a Cobb salad. And a tablehopper reader saw him having lunch at Seasons at the Four Seasons Hotel with his entourage. He also had dinner at Spruce last Sunday.

Poggio in Sausalito got all kinds of star power, too. First, British comedic actor Eddie Izzard (from FX’s The Riches) was in town for a show at the Orpheum, and dined outside on Poggio’s patio with three friends. The four-hour feast included plenty of cocktails, food, and wine. They kept to themselves—and no, Eddie was not wearing a dress!

And then Poggio got their second James Bond visit! Craig, Daniel Craig, recently drank a beer and had a snack at the bar with a female companion. (The previous 007 sighting was when Pierce Brosnan enjoyed a Manhattan there back in April… I sure hope he didn’t order it shaken.)

Meanwhile, at the Ferry Building Farmers’ Market, Matthew Fox, the doctor from Lost was found there.

After an exclusive preview of “Beggars To Exiles: Unseen Photographs Of The Rolling Stones, 1966–1971” in the Spanish Suite at the Clift, Meet Joe Black and Medium actor Jake Weber, along with Rolling Stones photographer Dominique Tarle, and an entourage of ten were in Farallon’s private dining room for a lavish dinner (including an oyster platter and a rare bottle of Didier Dagueneau Pouilly-Fumé).
