Fumbling All Around Town
August 11, 2015
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!
Another Week, and More Woody Sightings
August 28, 2012
Yes, the Woody Allen sightings continue to roll in. According to a tweet, he came in to La Victoria Panaderia and had a cupcake. (“Standard. No frosting.”)
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.
The Woody and Cate Sightings Continue
August 21, 2012
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.
Also via Twitter, Twirl and Dip (an ice cream truck in the Mission) got to serve Cate Blanchett some ice cream, and tweeted: “Day: made!”
Posh Drinks and Lots of Dining with Woody (and Cate Blanchett)
August 14, 2012
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).
On Friday night, he dined with Cate Blanchett at Jardinière.
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.
Woody Allen: Still Hungry
August 7, 2012
The ever-bespectacled Woody Allen continues his culinary tour in San Francisco, stopping at Esperpento in the Mission according to Mission Mission, and Leah Garchik reports he also dined at Zuni Café.
Woody Allen on the Town
July 31, 2012
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.”
He then dined that evening at Kokkari with Soon-Yi. (I also heard Star Jones was at Kokkari on the same day.)
