The record-breaking heat wave had local newscasters trying to fry eggs on the sidewalk, but the rest of us were still able to find a more sanitary means of feeding ourselves. Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz managed to grab some pasta and calamari on the Upper East Side, while the globe-trotting Anthony Bourdain ventured into the exotic Flatiron district with his wife. Finding food wasn't an issue for David Beckham, either it was finding his dining partner that proved tricky. Lots more sightings straight ahead.
