Baseball and Benihana

A reader writes in that ~Derek Jeter~ of the New York Yankees had lunch at Benihana in Japantown with a teammate (they were placed at their own private table). My spotter notes: “Funny that they would eat there since they are staying at the St. Regis and could have lunch at Benu [ed. note: Benu isn’t open for lunch], Prospect, or one of those places closer to their hotel. The Yankees were in town for a four-game series with the A’s.”
