Jennifer Aniston Ate at Cooper Square's Table 8 Before You Did
We give the Cooper Square a pretty hefty amount of garbage for their panty-views (see here and here, in case you haven't been in on the fun) and their occasionally non-functioning website and whatnot, so we'll be nice today and deliver some good news: we called the hotel this morning and found out that Table 8, the hotel's long-awaited restaurant from chef Govind Armstrong, opened last night.
New York Mag's latest issue mentioned the opening, describing the dining room as "outfitted with a leather-clad wall, bookshelves, and a central fourteen-seat 'salt bar' featuring house-cured meats and fish," but according to the hotel staffer we spoke to, the resto didn't actually open to the public until last night.
On Tuesday night, however, good ol' Jennifer Aniston was all up in there for her new flick's after-party, but the only notable happening from that event was some weird drama going on with her and some dude (so says Page Six). We're not too worried about Aniston making this her new Sunset Tower, though, 'cause she doesn't live in NYC. In other words, we can sleep soundly knowing we'll be able to enjoy those fabled short-rib grilled cheese sandwiches (as seen on Oprah!) in peace.
