Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie took a short tour of Manhattan’s restaurant scene this week, dining for hours with friends at Alto, and then sharing a date at Le Perigord. Across town, after running into music legends Reed and Smith at Omen, Kelly Cutrone dubbed the restaurant “the new Russian Tea Room for the macrobiotic elite.” Meanwhile, Jessica Szohr and Ed Westwick shared movie-theater nachos (aw), Al Gore ate at David Burke Townhouse, and Jennifer Lopez shared caviar at Charles with police chief Ray Kelly.
