Last Wednesday, ~Kim Kardashian~ West, ~Kanye West~, and five-year-old North West were spotted dining ~ALEXANDER’S STEAKHOUSE~ in San Francisco.   The family reportedly enjoyed Alexander’s Steakhouse signature wagyu cuts, including Hokkaido, Kagawa Sanuki, and Hyogo Kobe beef, along with marble potatoes, shichimi fries, and seasonal roasted root vegetables. For North, she went with a burger and hot chocolate. Kim and Kanye also ordered a special appetizer off the menu prepared by executive chef Eric Upper, a vegetarian couscous dish which they shared.

After performing two of three nights at Oracle Arena for his world tour, ~Drake~ hung out post-show Saturday and Sunday at ~FIFTH ARROW~ in Union Square, the bowling alley, bar, and restaurant adjoining August Hall. Bowling and playing Pop-A-Shot were the reported highlights.

Drake was also spotted dining at ~WATERBAR~ Sunday night with a crew of seven. They dined on the imperial shellfish platter, salads, the jumbo prawn platter, steaks, and pasta dishes, along with some pinot grigio and Don Julio 1942.

So nice, he had it twice. ~Beck~ dined at ~TRESTLE~ in Jackson Square with a couple guests, and enjoyed his meal so much that he reordered the exact same dishes before his performance at AT&T Park (he’s currently on his 15-month Colors Tour). So what did he have? The delicata squash salad with arugula, pomegranate, pumpkin seeds, pecans, and blue cheese; the aged white cheddar risotto; and the flat-iron steak with creamed spinach, roasted sunchokes, and mustard jus.

A tablehopper reader let me know that ~Tony Hawk~ was spotted at ~LIHOLIHO YACHT CLUB~ a couple weeks ago. He was in town to speak at #SIGNALConf by Twilio. Ends up he has been in a couple times before, often with his skate team in tow.

Rapper and stylin’ host of Vice’s Most Expensiveist show ~2 Chainz~ dined with a group in the private room at ~FANG RESTAURANT~ in SoMa. Details are slim, but it looks like he brought plenty of his own ice.

Some exciting stars have been spotted at ~PICCINO~ in Dogpatch, starting with ~Leonardo DiCaprio~, who came in for an early dinner. He was in town for a huge auction his foundation put on in Santa Rosa with Jackson Family Wines, raising $11 millon for environmental causes (which I hear also counted Sophia Loren, Catherine Deneuve, Edward Norton, Jane Goodall, Mark Ruffalo, Naomi Campbell, Dakota Johnson, Lukas Haas, and Tobey Maguire as guests, with a performance by Chris Martin, can you imagine?).

Piccino also played host to two of the coolest ladies in showbiz for a campaign for One Fair Wage: ~Jane Fonda~ and ~Lily Tomlin~! As partner Sher Rogat said to me, “It was simply life affirming…”

Amazonian goddess and OG supermodel ~Naomi Campbell~ was in town for the Global Climate Action Summit (and launch of the new Apple iPhones) and swooped in to Tartine Manufactory for lunch with friends, leaving the staff and guests star-struck and smiling extra-big.
