Our favorite celebrity sighting of the week was, of course, Lindsay Lohan at Peter Luger on Tuesday night thats because we saw her with our own eyes. Of course, we cant be everywhere and see everyone, so as usual weve combed the gossip columns for other stop-ins. Were sorry we missed Tracy Morgan at the Plumm, shirtless and offering to father babies as usual, and boy do we wish we were a fly on the wall when partners Ken Friedman and Taavo Somer, along with David Chang, dined with Stephen Starr at Buddakan. Is there a Spotted Buddafuku in the works?
