I love these kinds of sightings: Fabio was spotted having lunch at Waterbar.

Wine country was full of food media sightings, all in town for the CIA Worlds of Flavor Conference (this year’s theme was street food/comfort food). Ruth Reichl and LA’s Jonathan Gold and Laurie Ochoa were spotted having the spaghettini with tripe at Terra; Ruth Reichl also went to Meadowood, Jonathan Gold was at ubuntu (inspiring my favorite Tweet: “When Ubuntu waiter confessed he was a sunchoke guy, I refrained from saying I was a pork belly guy. I think he knew.”), and Rick Bayless dined at Bottega.

Since we’re on the topic of food folks, the fabulous Lidia Bastianich was at Poggio.
