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.
