A source of a source told me that based on Austin Scaggs’s recommendations, ~The Strokes~ ate at Tommaso’s on Friday night, and then La Taqueria on Saturday before their performance at Outside Lands, and then on Sunday at Yank Sing for dim sum. Scaggs (son of Boz, and a music critic and senior editor for Rolling Stone magazine) was texting the musicians from New York, telling them what to order at each location, and making sure that they did not have to wait like the rest of us while at Tommaso’s. What a guy—I need his mobile number.

Saw a couple tweets about ~John Waters~, who was spotted dining at Sons & Daughters. One tweet mentioned, “Not sure if our table [was] more rowdy, or his!”

Last Thursday, ~Eric Anthony Roberts~, brother of Julia Roberts, was spotted at E&O Trading Co. San Francisco. He was lunching with two others.

The city was jam-packed with chefs visiting town, including ~Daniel Humm~ of Eleven Madison Park in New York, who was spotted at the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market and having lunch at Chez Panisse Café. More highlights: ~Lidia Bastianich~ and her daughter were filming at A16, and I saw both ~David Burke~ and ~Drew Nieporent~ at the Wayfare Tavern SF Chefs after party on Saturday night.

According to this posting on Eater, ~Cyndi Lauper~ was spotted at Cin-Cin Wine Bar in Los Gatos, eating “steak frites, sliders, seared ahi, soba noodle wraps, and mushroom empanadas” with five friends. They also reportedly ordered bottles of Gary Farrell chardonnay and Pelerin pinot noir.
