This week, the glitterati were drinking it all off (celebrities — they are truly just like us!). Disgraced former governor Eliot Spitzer stopped in for a drink at The Four Seasons Hotel bar, while chef Todd English, a recent runaway groom, took to the bottle at the recently opened Gansevoort 69 (which took over the Florent space). Meanwhile, Broadway’s man about town, Jude Law, smoked indoors at 2A. The week in celebrity eating and drinking, for your perusal.
