Catch: Michael Jordan and Patrick Ewing met friends for dinner, and MJ proved he is still a champion — by devouring a red snapper dish for two. [NYDN]

Cipriani: Richard Gere left wife Carey Lowell at home and spent Tuesday night’s City Harvest Gala flirting with Miss Universe and Elizabeth Olsen. Anything for a good cause? [NYDN]

Cherry: Major Lazer’s Jillionaire dined with Diplo before a surprise D.J. set at PH-D. [Page Six/NYP]

Dean & Deluca: Meg Ryan carried bags from the gourmet deli, generating the Daily News pun: "Meg-a-Bites." [NYDN]

Henry’s: Unlikely friends Eliot Spitzer and David Paterson drank wine at the Upper West Side bistro in a meeting for the "Ex-Guv Club" on Thursday night. Eliot said he "wakes up happy every day now." [NYDN]

Il Buco Alimentari: Christine Quinn talked about her campaign with Bill Thompson’s strategist Jonathan Prince seated nearby. Too bad the East Village restaurant doesn’t have soundproof tables. [Page Six/NYP]

XL: Beth Ditto worried cameramen might "photograph her tampon string" while she performed at the Hell’s Kitchen club. Parker Posey was in the audience, though hopefully not the front row. [NYDN]
