It’s the first official week of fall, and celebrity dining is in full effect. John Mayer was spotted at Gemma, but his ex Jennifer Aniston one-upped him by dining at this year’s celebrity haunt, Monkey Bar. Meanwhile, Kate Moss sipped coffee outside Jack’s and, lest we forget, Mobama herself lunched at Gramercy Tavern. This week’s full roster of celebrity sightings at New York restaurants is below.
