October 26, 2010

A tablehopper reader spotted ~Val Kilmer~ outside of Café Gratitude in Berkeley. He was taking photos of the outside (it wasn’t open just yet). Apparently he’s currently filming a Francis Ford Coppola movie.

Last Sunday night, the day after ~LCD Soundsystem~ rocked it out at the Treasure Island Music Festival, members of the band dined at Bar Tartine—they had the burger, omelet, fried green tomatoes, and bone marrow. I can’t believe I (almost) missed the opportunity to meet my future husband (James Murphy); but he wasn’t dining with the group that night—he was at the Hot Chip show at the Warfield with Dagan Ministero from Terroir. And oh rats, he’s already married; oh well, I will wait!

Murphy, aka the future Mr. Gagliardi, seems to be quite the oenophile—he tweeted about Terroir in SoMa during his stay in SF. Le sigh. We’d get along so well.

Everyone’s favorite dreamer-Tweeter ~Ruth Reichl~ was out on the town, loving her meal at Quince (“Most delicious dish! Smooth urchin, silky sliced scallop, crunch of pomegranate, punch of lime. Quince in SF: gorgeous experience.”) and down by the Ferry Building on Monday (“Silvery San Francisco morning. Walking down to the Ferry building. Coffee, bread and cheese, sitting with seagulls the edge of the Bay.”). She also came into Bar Tartine on Sunday night, dining on pâté and salads with LA’s Nancy Silverton.

Governor ~Arnold Schwarzenegger~ was spotted having breakfast at Vitrine restaurant at The St. Regis San Francisco.
