A couple of Upper West Side celebrity sightings of note:


Matt Damon was recently working out at the UWS Crunch (162 W. 83rd). MUW reader Katie spotted him over the weekend, noting “my trainer called me in advance to tell me he was there.”

Damon had a high-profile apartment search in the neighborhood and I’m pretty sure he ended up at 535 West End Avenue (corner of 86th). I’m surprised to hear he works out at Crunch as I would have figured he had a gym in his apartment or building, but apparently he’s a semi-regular presence at Crunches around the city (here & here).

Elsewhere, MUW reader Jennifer reports dining at UWS restaurant Joanne last night and spotting Lada Gaga — the restaurant is owned by her parents.

You may recall that last month NY Post critic Steve Cuozzo took a huge written shit all over the restaurant. For what it’s worth, Jennifer had this to say about her experience there:

“Ate at Joanne tonight (and Gaga was there!). It was very good! Had the vegetable lasagna in bechemel sauce and my friend had grilled chicken with brocccoli rabe. Scale of 1-10, I’d give it a 7. The place was absolutely packed!”
