It’s unlikely the food was butchered at high-class eatery Le Cirque this week, but classic cinema sure was when Jennifer Garner and Russell Brand filmed scenes for the updated Arthur at the restaurant. Across the river in Brooklyn, Mayor Bloomberg made sure a meal out with girlfriend Diana Taylor and pals was exactly to his taste: After dispatching bodyguards to secure a top table at Williamsburg’s Aurora an hour before his arrival, he ordered off the menu and enjoyed a tagliatelle arrabiata of his own design (presumably low on salt).
