Celebrity Settings

Summer Ends, Even for Rich People

This week, celebrities got their last tastes of the Hamptons before Labor Day: Joy Behar ate at Almond, and, at Philippe, Barbara Walters dined with Paul McCartney — who also chewed the fat with Michael J. Griffith at Nicol’s. But some celebrities are still eating on the island: Whitney Port and her gal pal shared a Mediterranean salad at Aleo, and Penn Badgley ate at Obama’s favorite burger joint, Five Guys. We’re getting our last tastes of summer, too, by taking off early. Grub Street will be back on Tuesday morning. Enjoy the weekend, and check out this week’s sightings of famous people eating food, below:
