While the end of the summer can be a downer, it does have at least one upside: New York’s notables are back from vacation, and are hitting their favorite dining spots around the city in full-swing. The camaraderie was high as Yankees, Giants, and Rangers shared a dining room, A-listers assembled for Gwenyth Paltrow’s birthday, and castmates celebrated premieres. But it wasn’t all smooth eating this week: Jennifer Aniston boo Justin Theroux’s bike was the victim of an anonymous trickster and some lunch meat yesterday morning. Find out where he and Jen went for dinner later that night, and more celebrity settings, straight ahead.

Abe & Arthur’s: A slew of sports stars headed to the meatpacking on Saturday: Derek Jeter dined with former Yankees outfielder Gerald Williams and Michael Jordan, New York Giants Ahmad Bradshaw and Brandon Jacobs sat at the next table, and Rangers Brad Richards, Marian Gaborik, and Brandon Prust were also at the restaurant that night.

Buddakan: Bradley Cooper joined Alexander Skarsgård, Steve Martin, Jason Sudeikis, and Radiohead, to name a few, at the SNL after-party last weekend. The large crew split up throughout the night; Cooper sneaked off to the upstairs cocktail lounge with an unidentified brunette while Lorne Michaels, Kristen Wiig, and fellow cast members dined in the golden library. Meanwhile, Bill Hader and Paul Rudd coupled up to trade one-liners. [Page Six/NYP]
Craft: Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux have been hitting the streets again this week in New York, with dinner at Colicchio’s Flatiron flagship last night — hopefully a little farm-fresh food got rid of the sour taste Theroux was surely left with after the morning’s bologna incident. [Popsugar]
Four Seasons: Seth Rogen, Anna Kendrick, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt toasted to 50/50’s New York debut with a celebratory dinner on Monday. [In Style]
Lavo: Jon Huntsman enjoyed a quiet drink here last weekend, ducking out just before the Riviera Sundays crowd and nighttime clubgoers piled in. [Page Six/NYP]
Marble Lane at the Dream Downtown: Olympic gold medalist Michael Phelps has already been training for weeks, but he took the night off on Monday to meet a few friends for drinks at the Dream Downtown’s lobby restaurant. [Grub Street]
Michael’s: Daniel Craig ate lunch with wealth manager Blaine Lourd on Monday, while Giada DeLaurentiis and CBS VP Margery Baker dined at a neighboring table. [Page Six/NYP]
Primola: Harry Belafonte met with ICM agent Esther Newberg to discuss his upcoming memoir My Song and subsequent book tour. [Page Six/NYP]
Tamarind: GILT Groupe CEO Kevin Ryan and Senator Chuck Schumer ate Indian food earlier this week. [Page Six/NYP]
Tertulia: Gwyneth Paltrow celebrated her 39th birthday with husband Chris Martin, Jay-Z, and Beyoncé on Monday. From her tweet on Wednesday about a “horrific hangover at JFK,” we’re guessing the night (and probably into the next day) involved more than a few tapas. [Popsugar, NYDN]
