March 31, 2009

Ben Affleck, Mike Walrath (Senior Vice President, Yahoo—Right Media), and a third gent dined at a corner table at Spruce. Looks like Ben is a pork man, and they also enjoyed some fab wines.

Gerard Depardieu and two male friends briefly hung out over two pots of green tea at the Redwood Room at the Clift. Whoa, sounds like a wild night, fellas. You better slow down, because that green tea thing can get outta hand, really fast.

And not to fan the flames of Anthony Bourdain’s cult of self any further, but there were plenty of Tony sightings all over town, from a quick bite and a beer in the café area of Postrio to the head-to-tail dinner at Incanto to Aub Zam Zam in the Haight to doing the brasserie thing at the Grand Cafe and Bar while he was staying at the Hotel Monaco. One more tidbit from a reader: “He was headed to House of Prime Rib. I told him that National Prime Rib Day was not until April 27 (which is true). He said for him every day is prime rib day.” The truly obsessed can check out the map o’ Tony at Eater.

Sammy Hagar and his family came in to Joey and Eddie’s to watch the Rat Pack show and dine with Joseph Manzare on Sunday March 15th.

Rudy Giuliani was spotted (and applauded) during his dinner at the Cliff House, and was reportedly quite fired up on chef George Morrone’s cuisine.

And Senator Dianne Feinstein had dinner at Postrio on Saturday evening.
