Hey isn’t that… Actress Susan Sarandon, her mother Lenora Marie Criscione and a few others dining at Passionfish in Reston, Va., on Tuesday night. According to our tipsters, Sarandon, who graduated from Catholic University in 1968, and her group of five were tucked away at a private corner table.

They entered through the restaurant’s discreet side door, not because the Oscar-winner feared flashing iPhones but because of Tuesday’s downpour.  Passionfish’s general manager greeted the group outside with an umbrella and led them inside.
