New York's three-term mayor Edward I. Koch, who sat in office from 1978 to 1989, died early Friday morning at age 88 of congestive heart failure, at New York-Presbyterian Columbia Hospital. The man who saved the city from bankruptcy, and had a "wonderfully big mouth" and several post City Hall careers also loved food, a lot.

Celebrities were up to their usual shenanigans this week, popping bottles and such. Leonardo DiCaprio hit up both Catch and Avenue, John Mayer and Allison Williams dined together at El Toro Blanco, and Adam Levine celebrated his SNL hosting gig at STK. It's time once again for our weekly roundup of celebrity sightings.

"Do you want to hear about all the meetings and everything?" Eddie Huang asks as we start to go over his diet. It's a fair question, since he's been everywhere this week promoting the release of Fresh Off the Boat, his new memoir. "It's super tiring, to be honest," he says of the media blitz, but he also admits it's been "a dream come true to see people respond the way they have to the book." Admittedly, a Grub Street Diet does add to the pile of Huang-heavy stories this week, but we still wanted to see what he ate because, between all the interviews and events, Huang still managed to find time for some omakase lunch, some weekend dim sum, and plenty of green juice to keep his mom happy. Read all about it in this week's Grub Street Diet.
