Quick intake of breath: Dame ~Helen Mirren~ was spotted dining at ~KOKKARI~ Sunday evening with her husband (Taylor Hackford) and another couple. My spotter says there were a lot of lookie-loos trying to walk by their table for a glimpse of her majesty. I mean, yeah. I’m still trying to recover from her breathtaking LEWK at the Oscars.

What an incredible honor to have ~Barack Obama~ in SF last night, on Presidents’ Day! He dined at ~INTERNATIONAL SMOKE~, and chef Michael Mina cooked for him—of course ~Ayesha Curry~ and ~Steph Curry~ were there, alongside ~Chrissy Teigen~ and ~John Legend~ as well.

Obama is in town for MBK Rising!, an invite-only, two-day convening in Oakland that is part of his My Brother’s Keeper Alliance (“MBK Alliance leads a national call to action to build safe and supportive communities for boys and young men of color where they feel valued and have clear paths to opportunity”). Both Curry and Legend are part of the conference, which will be streamed live for the next two days.

A few weeks ago, ~THE MORRIS~ was closed for quite the private event for one of their regulars, who was celebrating a birthday. It got a beautiful transformation into a private dining room, with tons of amazing flowers from Birch, and check out the baller lineup of wines they poured to go with a high-end tostada and taco bar. It ends up ~Kanye West~ was part of the party, but had to hurry off to hit John Legend’s birthday in LA right after dinner. (And I thought I was a tablehopper.)
