Most of the boldface and the beautiful were at Sundance this week, but we still had some sightings. Former president Bill Clinton loved the stromboli bread at Scarpetta so much he requested a new basket with each course. Amanda Hearst enjoyed some faux-French cuisine at Indochine. Exhausted Ethan Hawke showed his parental prowess as he watched over 25 youngsters at his son’s birthday party at the uptown eatery Serafina. See who else was out and about in this week’s Celebrity Settings roundup.
