This week, New York’s restaurant scene felt a bit D.C. Malia Obama took after POTUS’s penchant for dining excursions (albeit of the “hip” Asian fusion-y kind), Bill and Hill had a lavish meal, and Dennis Rodman got thrown out of a restaurant for telling everyone that North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un’s a great guy. But this week’s appearances weren’t all political; the starlets were out and about, too. Lindsay Lohen stayed out late, Hayden Panettiere go-go-danced, and Sienna Miller romanced her sweetie. Here, once more, your weekly roundup of celebrity dining.
