By Guest New York, New York


..especially if you go late. I've spotted Scarlett Johansson, Lindsay Lohan, Helena Christensen, Liv Tyler, Josh Hartnett, Michael Stipe, Charlie Rose, Thom Browne, and Heather Mills McCartney. Also sat next to Ashley Olsen canoodling with Lance Armstrong while her TV dad, Bob Saget, looked on. But the best sighting ever was Jay-Z, Bono, and BIll Clinton -- dining TOGETHER! Even the normally unflappable New Yorkers gawked at that one. Okay, I go there a lot, but the crowd (famous or not) is great, the beer and wine selections terrific, and the food fantastic. Everyone orders the classics (gnudi, burger, haddock chowder) but don't be afraid to go out on a limb and try something different. The chef, April, has a great way with salads, combining ingredients in revelatory ways; if you see the salad of roasted carrots, avocado, and cumin on the menu, ORDER IT! Ditto the radish salad with parmesan and basil, and the prosciutto-ricotta tart. The chocolate tart with creme fraiche is the perfect conclusion - not too sweet. I think I may have to go again tonight!
