Famous people eat out, too ...

Posted By on Fri, Sep 7, 2007 at 5:03 PM

There's a great new thread today on Atlanta Cuisine's forum about celebrity sightings in restaurants. The question posed is what to do, which is obvious to me -- leave them alone! After living in New York, that just became a given -- only a tourist would approach a celebrity in that city. But there are some great stories on the site about celebrity sightings.

My best celebrity-in-a-restaurant story was sitting next to Meg Ryan at Prune in NYC. The tables there are so close together, I was literally rubbing elbows with her sitting on the banquette. Of course we didn't say anything to her, although my husband admitted later that he spent most of the night almost saying, "You look a lot like Meg Ryan" to her. He didn't really think it was her until a German woman came over to gush. Damn tourists ...

What are your restaurant celebrity sightings?
