Famously rumpled director, writer, and creep ~Woody Allen~ was spotted in a few different spots around San Francisco this week. A reader wrote in to let us know they spotted him at Capannina on Tuesday. He was with a male friend and apparently has been in before. On Thursday, he also stopped in at Balboa Cafe, of which he is reportedly a fan, and then again later in the week with his wife Soon Yi. We also had a reader write in to let us know they heard he’s been at Perry’s not once, but twice. Turns out, he’s a fan of Union Street!
He also came in to the brand-new Farina Pizza & Cucina Italiana for lunch last Monday with six guests, all of which were reportedly in showbiz: one was from Rome and two others spoke Italian.
Seems every San Franciscan is going to see ~Woody Allen~ before this film wraps up: a tablehopper follower on Twitter said he was spotted at Mission Chinese Food, and another let me know he came in to Wise Sons Deli. Eater reports he also dined at Nettie’s Crab Shack with Soon Yi.
Man, that ~Woody Allen~ is a man on the town. Seriously. A tweet placed him at Quince having drinks, while this post via The Bold Italic mentions he was at Cotogna with his family (where he reportedly dozed off a little—hey, long days and long dinners can do that to ya).
And a reader wrote in to tell me they were filming at The Ramp yesterday (the restaurant sent out a notice that it was going to be closed for the day), which explains why Woody was spotted in Dogpatch, having lunch at Serpentine.
Okay then! You ready for some ~Woody Allen~ sightings? He’s in town filming a new movie starring Cate Blanchett, Alec Baldwin, Peter Sarsgaard, and comedian Louis C.K. (There isn’t a title for the film yet.) Anyway, Woody came in for lunch at Rose Pistola with a group from a local production company. My starstruck spotter said, “He was very kind, as was everyone, and had a plate of heirloom tomatoes and cherry upside-down cake.”
