Scottish actor, singer, and author ~Alan Cumming~ was spotted dining at Montclair’s newly opened Southern Thai restaurant, ~DAUGHTER THAI~. He was reportedly seated with a mixed-age party of six at the communal table—and it seems it was the day after Cumming’s 52nd birthday, so happy birthday (here he is crowd surfing). He was in the Bay Area this week to “Sing Sappy Songs” for a few nights at Stanford Live.
Chefs ~Amanda Freitag~ and ~Ariane Duarte~ were seen dining at ~FINN TOWN~. Freitag is a New York chef, cookbook author, judge on Food Network’s Chopped, competitor on Iron Chef and Next Iron Chef, and co-host of American Diner Revival. You would recognize Duarte from Top Chef Season 5, and she has a restaurant—Ariane Kitchen & Bar—in Verona, New Jersey. (Finn Town’s chef, Ryan Scott, was on Top Chef Season 4.)
