Here’s something you don’t see every day: Morimoto was at Morimoto last night. The old original Iron Chef blew into to town yesterday in advance of the special collaboration dinner he’s doing with his iron-clad compadre Jose Garces tonight at JG Domestic. The private feast is for the winning bidders from last year’s Japanese earthquake relief fundraiser. One eager tweeter spotted him coming out of the Ritz. Also yesterday LeBron James and several Miami Heat teammates took in a bite at Sabrina’s Callowhill location.
On Wednesday Wing Bowl champ and world renowned competitive eater Kobayashi chowed down with blogger Dan McQuade ar Osteria. Apparently when not gorging himself at the speed of sound, he appreciates a nice meal. [Phillymag]
That same night, Sex and the City star Kim Cattrall stopped in at Vedge, where she enjoyed the portobella carpaccio and washed it down with a Dogfish Head My Antonia. [Insider]
