This was a particularly gossip-filled week in New York City: Jennifer Aniston celebrated an early anniversary at Blue Hill, while Matt Damon ate a ton of desserts at STK. Jake Gyllenhaal forgot his wallet at Sant Ambroeus, and Chris Rock ordered five gallons of sangria at Nello. This, and more, in our weekly roundup of celebrity dining.
Blue Hill: Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux “looked very happy” as they ate at the restaurant, where they got engaged about a year ago. [People]
Nello: Chris Rock dined with a film crew and asked for “five gallons of sangria,” which is almost enough sangria to get through a heat wave. Rock was also spotted taking a lunch break with his Finally Famous co-star Rosario Dawson at Olio Pizza e Più, and lunching at Morton’s The Steakhouse. [Page Six/NYP, amNY]
Sant Ambroeus: Jake Gyllenhaal and model girlfriend Alyssa Miller shared brunch at the West Village restaurant, where the pair sat “close together” on the same side of the table and read the paper. Gyllenhaal was seen later returning to the restaurant to claim his forgotten wallet. Ah, young love. [Page 6/NYP]

STK: Matt Damon enjoyed a “laid-back” meal dining on steaks, bread pudding, peanut butter cups, and doughnuts, and drinking beer with his wife and a few friends. Turns out he’s not such a dessert simpleton after all. [People]
