VINCENTI RISTORANTE: A reader was at the Brentwood spot earlier this week. "Saw heavenly John Cusack dining a deux with a lucky girl, and at another table Jamie Lee Curtis and Christopher Guest with another couple." [StarWatch Inbox]
BLT STEAK: We hear Jeffrey Katzenberg and Raquel Welch were just two of the famous faces in this first week of business. Not as famous: we spotted restaurateur Adolfo Suaya (3/21) with two gals and one guy, all looking much, much younger than him. [StarWatch]
MADRE'S: The fact that J-Lo's restaurant is still open in the Dena is shocking enough, but Stephen Hawking chatting with admirers(3/15) and hitting the "THANKS" button on his wheelchair-mounted computer takes blows the mind. [Defamer]
DUSTY'S: (3/16) Fromer Grey's star Kate Walsh spotted at the Silver Lake spot with a friend for brunch: "I was stunned that she looked normal, yes still skinny, but not so skinny I wanted to force feed her lard." Later that day, Eva Mendes in for the lunch rush. [Defamer]
OSTERIA MOZZA: (3/19) Giovani Ribisi, "who appears to be shrinking every time I see him (or maybe I'm eating too much Mozza pasta)", and Andy Samberg at a table of four. [Defamer]
CANTER'S: Another SNL-ish sighting: Chris Parnell noshing with the rest of the lowlifes at Canter's on a Tuesday night (3/11). "Chatting with a female friend, looked platonic". [Defamer]
CASA DEL MAR: "For relaxing times, make it Suntory time" Bill Murray, having a drink in the lobby bar at hotel Casa Del Mar in Santa Monica. [Planet Gossip]
