Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz are clearly still in their honeymoon phase, enjoying a string of romantic dates and meals out around the city (this week at Via Dei Mille). Unfortunately, the situation was not so rosy for Mary-Louise Parker at Sweetiepie. After her daughter Caroline accidentally knocked a glass over, a fellow patron at the restaurant felt the need to impart some firm — and unwarranted — parenting advice. Words were exchanged, Sweetiepie staff intervened, and the meddlesome diner soon left. But hey, Caroline got a lollipop so it wasn’t all bad. The rest of this week’s delicious celebrity spottings straight-ahead.
