There was a good mix of business and pleasure this week. Former Wolverine director Darren Aronofsky and Hugh Jackman presumably talked shop when they met for lunch at the Smith. Lindsay Lohan, on the other hand, spent her week in New York shopping, eating at Lavo and the Lion, and making out. Also out there was artist and filmmaker Julian Schnabel, who showed up to Indochine in a distinguished pajamas-slippers-top-hat ensemble. The rest of this week’s sightings straight ahead.

Indochine: A cavalier Julian Schnabel “sailed into the restaurant with his girlfriend, Rula Jebreal, wearing brown pajamas and red suede slippers.” Later in the meal, Schnabel added to his outfit a sensible “top hat decorated with small stuffed animals.” [Daily Intel]
Lavo: Sporting cowboy boots and blue jeans, Lindsay Lohan took a sibling or two out for a meal. [Gatecrasher/NYDN]
The Lion: Not one to stay in for too long, Lohan nourished herself here before heading to 1 Oak, where she “made out with a random guy.” [Blemish]
Marea: Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas, looking “very healthy,” got the VIP treatment as they dined at a corner booth. [People]
