August 2, 2011

Yeah, that would be ~Jake Gyllenhaal~, who was spotted dining at Zuni Café on Friday night with an unidentified female. Thanks to editor Brock Keeling of SFist, who sent me the sighting (the tip was sent to him by two friends dining at Zuni, and confirmed by the waitstaff. Sadly, neither friend would ask the waitstaff what Jake was eating.).

Short track speed skater ~Apolo Ohno~, the most decorated American Winter Olympic athlete of all time, has been spotted around town the past couple nights. On Sunday night, a tablehopper reader saw him go into Foreign Cinema “after exiting a big black Hummer!” He walked in with friends, and they dined on the sea bass and fried chicken.

And according to a tweet, he was spotted at 5A5 Steak Lounge last night as well.

Last night, Denise Hale escorted cast members of hit British television series Downton Abbey to Marlowe for a late-night meal. The good-looking guests included Dan Stevens (plays Matthew Crawley), Michelle Dockery (Lady Mary Crawley), and Elizabeth McGovern (Countess Cora). (They are reportedly touring the United States for special screenings—the second part of the series won’t air in the U.S. until January 8th, 2012.) The party of 12 dined on deviled eggs, polenta, the famed burger (of course), and plenty of white Burgundy and Champagne was flowing until late into the night (try 3am!).

According to a tweet, ~Bill Gates~ had dinner at Bourbon Steak (for a second time).

A tablehopper reader reports comedian ~Dave Foley~ (of The Kids in the Hall and NewsRadio) was at Scala’s Bistro last week. He had the sea bass, and shared two dozen oysters with his dining companions.

A couple sightings at Boulevard: ~Steve Schirripa~, who played Tony’s brother-in-law (Bobby ‘Bacala’ Baccalieri) on The Sopranos came in, and comedian ~Richard Lewis~ of Curb Your Enthusiasm walked in for lunch yesterday (without a reservation, good for him).

On Sunday night at Flour + Water, a tablehopper reader spotted ~Maynard James Keenan~ of Tool and A Perfect Circle (which performed at the Greek on Saturday July 30th).
