Date nights abounded in this week’s Celebrity Settings: Katy Perry and John Mayer feasted at the Lion, and in the Hamptons, Hilaria and Alec Baldwin went to Babette’s, while Joy Behar ate stuffed lobster with her husband at Bostwick’s. More festively, James Marsden had a boy’s night out at Manon, and elsewhere Ashanti danced with friends at Lavo. This, and so much more, straight ahead in our weekly roundup of celebrity dining.
