Katie Holmes and Suri Cruise spent a lot of mother-daughter time together (and consequently riled the paparazzi) this week, hitting NYC spots like Balthazar and City Bakery.

Meanwhile, another popular pair celebrated their extended wedding anniversary over the weekend: Beyoncé Knowles and hubby Jay-Z were spotted enjoying a romantic dinner downtown.
