Jennifer Lawrence and Aziz Ansari reportedly ate fried chicken and nachos at the Commodore in Williamsburg on Valentine's Day. According to People, the two actors had a "friendly" dinner. The Commodore has some of the best fried chicken in the city (read more at: amny.com/eat), so we are not surprised the duo chose this cool spot for a night out. Aziz also shot a scene of his hit show "Master of None" at the Commodore. They drank wine, too, according to People. That choice we can't get behind though -- the Commodore is known for tropical drinks, not vino!

Paris Hilton stopped by a midtown lunch hot spot Just Salad on Wednesday, Nov. 25, 2015. We don't know how she customized her salad -- but her green reusable bowl signifies that the heiress is either super eco-friendly or got the star treatment at the often-too-crowded salad chain. "Oh NBD, @ParisHilton grabbing a Chicken Caesar at our Murray Hill store! [600 Third Ave.] #ThatsHot," @JustSalad tweeted.

Lady Gaga at The Pomeroy

To celebrate the opening of Astoria's newest gastropub (chicken wings, mac and cheese), The Pomeroy, Lady Gaga strutted down Ditmars Boulevard in a short silver jacket with a bubble gum pink dress underneath. She visited Chef Bo O'Connor's new place on Tuesday, Oct. 6, 2015, and tweeted, "The Pomeroy in Astoria Queens is now open. The head chef is my best friend since I was 4! #hometowngirl" No word on if this is Queens' newest celeb hangout, but we expect hoards of Gaga fans on the N/Q train in the near future.

Kim shared a photo of the two drinking tea together with the caption, "Sipping & spilling the tea tonight with Serena." She also used a hot mug and frog emoji. Serena reposted the photo saying, "Delicious tea! [sad face emoji] lol." Guess we'll never really know what they were spilling on Labor Day.

Ms. Streisand celebrated her birthday with her husband at Ralph Lauren Polo Bar on April 23, 2015. This celebrity haunt (Rihanna, Kimye, Jerry Seinfeld, Bobby Flay, Woody Allen ...) has been notoriously difficult to get a table at -- even food critic Gael Greene tweeted she was struggling -- at since its opening earlier this year. Streisand noted on Facebook that she enjoyed "All the kinds of comfort food I loved from my childhood!" Was she dining on $24 burgers in 1950s Brooklyn?
