Okay, I am so bummed I wasn't at Aziza the night Jacques Pepin was in for dinner! He was with Susie Heller (she wrote "The French Laundry Cookbook" and "Bouchon" with Thomas Keller, and is the director of Jacques's, and previously Julia Childs's TV shows). Jacques was reportedly very impressed with Mourad Lahlou's cooking (rad) and told him that he's never had Moroccan food like this anywhere else in the world. Word.

Another tablehopper reader spotted Sean Hayes ("Just Jack") from Will & Grace at Venticello, who reportedly loves the place. Just fabulous!
