In this week’s celebrity cronut wars, Heidi Klum brought a bundle of the prized sweets onto her private jet, but Emma Roberts couldn’t cheat her way to the front of Dominique Ansel’s line. Meanwhile, Sir Paul McCartney and Steve Buscemi ate together at Nick and Toni’s, and Beyoncé and Jay Z celebrated around town after her performances. This, and more, in our weekly roundup of celebrity dining.

Dominique Ansel Bakery: Emma Roberts — and her publicist, of course — tried to skip to the front of the cronut line. They got turned away and went home (though they did get their coveted photo op), and Jimmy Fallon surprised the actress with a cronut on-air. [Daily Mail via DI]
Nick and Toni’s: Sir Paul McCartney and wife Nancy Shevell dined with Steve Buscemi at the Hamptons hot spot. Separately, L.A. Reid ate with his wife, and Emily Mortimer dined with her husband. Jeff Gordon, of NASCAR, also celebrated his 42nd birthday here. [amNY]
South Pointe: The Biebs was seen leaving the Southampton club with two waitresses, one of whom was wearing a little white H&M; bow tie borrowed from a man at a neighboring table. As the waitress got into Bieber’s SUV, the then-bow-tie-less man chased her out. Someone threw a rock at the Bieb-mobile, there was a brawl, and now J-Bieb is under investigation. Yikes.

Virgil’s Real BBQ: Grub received an e-mail announcing that R. Kelly was "trapped in the studio" this week, recording his twelfth album, Black Panties, when he Instagrammed a photo of his dinner: barbecue chicken and cheddar-cheese grits, catered by his "all-time favorite" New York barbecue joint.

Woodwork: Beyoncé, Jay-Z, and Justin Timberlake went to the Prospect Heights bar after one of her performances. An onlooker said the power trio arrived at 1 a.m., were very "casual and chill," and that "they seemed to just want to hang out and unwind." [amNY]
