We’re not typically the star-struck types, unless we find ourselves across the table from Jimmy Cliff as he eats seafood from The Bazaar and answers “Yes, I am me” when we sheepishly ask him if he is who we think he is. In other words, it was Grammy week and in addition to Cliff, we glimpsed Cee Lo Green and sexy Spanish actor Antonio Banderas eating over at (kinda sexy) Spanish chef Jose Andres’ place last Saturday. Elsewhere, Fred Savage proved to be a pop-up fanatic, tweeting his appreciation of The Magnum Crew dinner at Pal Cabron this week, while Grammy-winner Miranda Lambert dropped into WP24. And as Cameron Diaz and A-Rod hoofed it to Matsuhisa, super-sexy Spanish stars Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem ate at Koi. Even Justin Timberlake brought it on down to restaurant-ville, with a dinner date at Soho House beside Jessica Biel. All in all, a full week of a-list celebrities eating in and around L.A. Take a look!
