A few fun sightings at Jake’s on Market: one reader writes in to say they sat next to ~Armistead Maupin~ of Tales of the City fame, while another diner spotted actress ~Judy Davis~, who was in town to accept the Peter J. Owens Award at the San Francisco International Film Festival. Also in town for festival honors, ~Kenneth Branagh~ was spotted at Jake’s last Thursday. The reader who got to meet the Shakespearean actor tells us, “Wow, what a nice guy.”
~Ben Flajnik~ of The Bachelor dined at Bluestem Brasserie on Thursday afternoon and had that day’s special sandwich of house-cured corned beef and sauerkraut on rye. He dined at the bar with a Yelp exec, checking out the restaurant’s wines on tap (rumor has it he’s considering creating his own draft wine program).
