2009_03_pizzeriaortica.jpg1) AOC: "Saw Jamie Oliver and Natalie Portman Monday night at AOC (where they have started to do a "bites and flights" mini menu with $12 flights and $8 small plate specials)." [StarWatch Inbox]

2) Pizzeria Ortica: Hey Marcus, why all the pacing? From the inbox: "Chef Marcus Samuelsson at Pizzeria Ortica in Irvine (March 5th 2009, 7:45pm). Saw him pacing outside the restaurant for a couple of minutes. Sat at the bar. Chatted with him. Asked him why the hell he was in LA and not NY. Opening his new burger joint at South Coast the next day on the 6th. Came to meet up with some partners at Ortica. Saw Chef Steve Sampson talk him up a bit. Very very nice guy. I'm a little disappointed though that he sold out and is opening some burger joint." [StarWatch Inbox]

3) One Sunset: "Saw Lance Bass sitting out by the front area of One Sunset with a few others on Tuesday night, not sure if he was just having nibbles with friends or making some deals - but definitely heard some biz talk as my friend and I casually passed by." [StarWatch Inbox]

4) Mel's (Brentwood): All kinds of power couples were spotted at Mel's: "For your sightings: at the Brentwood on the same night this week -- ABC Entertainment boss Steve McPherson and Ari Emanuel (aka the real Ari from Entourage) and David Arquette and Courteney Cox-Arquette on a double date with Laura Dern and Ben Harper."
