Actress Eva Mendes, who spent a few days here this week, had lunch Wednesday at Rouge on Rittenhouse Square with boyfriend George Augusto and two women. Mendes had the salmon, while the others had burgers.
Meanwhile down the street: Check out this gingerbread house set up in the lobby of the Barclay. It was created by the pastry chefs from Barclay Prime steakhouse: Frank Urso, Amber Otis, and Leah Lanteri, and shows the landmark building, including snow on the roof.
Yes, I'd much rather post photos of Mendes, but especially this time of year, we must be thankful for what we have.
