Hey, isn’t that… actress Sarah Jessica Parker, architect Frank Gehry, artist Chuck Close and musician Trombone Shorty dining with a large party at the Big Bear Cafe in Bloomingdale?
The multi-talented gang, in town to promote the White House’s Turnaround Arts initiative, noshed Monday night on the cafe’s menu of locally-sourced goodies (SJP, we’re told, devoured the gumbo). And no divas were in the house — we’re told the entire party was gracious, excited about the Tuesday kids’ talent show at the White House… and genuinely seemed to like each other. (So much for artistic temperaments!)
Why Big Bear? After all, it’s no Cafe Milano (which practically corners the market on visiting celebs), but rather a low-key, neighborhood spot to grab coffee or a cozy dinner. No idea why the organizers picked the place, which closed down especially for the dinner, a cafe insider tells us.
