Celebrities spiraled out of control this week: Christine Quinn cemented her loud-mouth reputation, yelling at Il Buoco Alimentari; Richard Gere flirted with Miss Universe at Cipriani; Amanda Bynes crawled out of her parlor room in hell to “wander” around Marquee; and Drake brought an entourage of twenty to SL for protection. This, and more, in our roundup of celebrity dining.
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]
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]
