We imagine Top Chef: Season Five charmer Fabio Viviani could use a little love after the thundering slam dropped on his Firenze Osteria by S. Irene Virbila this past Wednesday. Your opportunity to give him a hug has arrived, as Fabio is coming to Book Star in Studio City this Saturday to sign his Café Firenze Cookbook: Mangi & Bevi. The book covers both Viviani’s Italian cooking and martini-making by his longtime companion Jacopo Falleni, who will join Fabio in signing books (and possibly whatever else you’ve got). The event starts Saturday at 3:30 p.m. and goes for two hours. Book Star: 12136 Ventura Blvd., Studio City.
