Goldie Hawn Requests ‘Real Food’ at Lavo; Gabriel Byrne Befriends Paul Giamatti at Tazza

By

The restaurant scene fielded a fair amount of celebrity activity this week. There was Lavo, which obliged Goldie Hawn's request for something substantial. At Tazza, coffee and good timing brought Gabriel Byrne and Paul Giamatti together. But Crown got the most action, taking in the lion's share of celebrities leaving this year's Met Gala. Lots more sightings straight ahead.
