Jerry knows what time it is — rib-eye time.
Celebrity sightings at bars and restaurants were few and far between this week — maybe everyone’s working on their best Groot costumes for a weekend of Halloween-related antics? In any case, Hideki Matsui tipped generously at Tavern on the Green, Ciara and Taye Diggs partied at VIP Room, and Jerry Seinfeld ordered a giant rib eye at Old Homestead Steakhouse. Here’s more on where these and other celebrities ate.
