Bourbon & Branch partner Doug Dalton spotted (and snapped a pic) of ~Rob Lowe~ filming outside Bourbon & Branch (Lowe is in town filming Knife Fight). Michael Murphy also mentioned in a tweet that “Hollywood hotties Rob Lowe & ~Carrie-Anne Moss~ were filming all day at Quince and Cotogna in SF.”

And in his off time, Lowe was spotted on Saturday evening dining with his wife, sons, and a few friends at Bistro Boudin at the Wharf (and yes, a famous clam chowder bread bowl was on the table).

A tablehopper reader spotted ~Adrian Grenier~ getting a frozen yogurt at Fraiche yogurt on Fillmore.

~Lorne Michaels~ came in to Delfina for dinner, and chef-owner Craig Stoll has this to share in a tweet: “I go over to his table to say hello but get tongue tied, tear up, say thanks for everything”?!, & run off.” Per his own observation in a follow-up tweet, Stoll says, “It’s probably best I stay in the back of the house.”

A tablehopper reader spotted ~Parker Posey~ at Bar Jules this past weekend.

First Lady ~Michelle Obama~ was making the rounds in the Bay Area on Tuesday June 14th, first dining on a brunch prepared by Alice Waters while at The Claremont Hotel Club & Spa in Berkeley. She then attended a luncheon prepared by chef Gustavo Romero Veytia of Credo in San Francisco’s Julia Morgan Ballroom; the luncheon was hosted by ballroom owners Clint and Janet Reilly. Chef Gustavo, after learning of Mrs. Obama’s favorite food, created a special order of tamales just for her, made from his family’s recipe.

Stone Temple Pilots drummer ~Eric Kretz~ was at Puccini & Pinetti restaurant with his wife and two kids, while ~Chris Daughtry~ and his band (named, what else, Daughtry) were spotted dining at the new oyster bar at Grand Café on Friday night.

It’s not a big surprise to see El Paseo partner ~Sammy Hagar~ on premise at the Mill Valley restaurant, but he was recently spotted dining with ~Joe Satriani~ (and their respective wives). Another sighting: ~Peter Coyote~.

~Joe Montana~ was spotted having lunch with his wife Jennifer outside at a bistro table at Café des Amis. Was happy to hear the couple had some wine with lunch. How Euro.
