Here in Philadelphia, we have cobbled together a ragtag assortment of sordid newscasters, radio DJs and bizarre local personalities which we tell ourselves are celebrities. But! Occasionally, an actual famous person will descend on Rittenhouse Square, dine at Rouge and make us feel less dirty. Jack Nicholson, who’s here shooting a James L. Brooks-directed film, is the most recent to follow this well-worn path to Dan Gross’s gossip column (although he apparently chose Parc over Rouge), but his co-star Reese Witherspoon broke free of the Rittenhouse dining stranglehold and brought boyfriend Jake Gyllenhaal with her. Where did they go?
To Sabrina’s in the Italian Market, according to Dan Gross, a bold choice for the high-profile duo. As anyone who has been to Sabrina’s for Sunday brunch knows - the lines are out of control, the quarters are close and the portions are enormous - not what you’d normally expect extremely famous Hollywood actors to seek out. Which makes us wonder, who exactly is giving the couple restaurant recommendations? Where would you tell Gyllenspoon to go? [Philly Gossip]
