You’d think that when Sienna Miller was in New York, she’d take a meal at a Meatpacking mecca like Bagatelle, or a blinged-out celebrity trap like Nobu. Nope. The globetrotting actress recently told us that her favorite place to dine in the Big Apple is Harlem’s historic soul food institution Sylvia’s. “Collard greens and fried chicken is my idea of heaven,” she says.
As for Peter Sarsgaard, her Mysteries of Pittsburgh costar, he prefers to dine within walking distance of the home he shares with wife Maggie Gyllenhaal. The Brooklyn resident chose Park Slope trattoria Al di Là as his go-to spot. “It’s incredible Italian food. They don’t take reservations so you have to stand in line, but it’s really, really good,” he said, as Miller made a mental note to write the name of the restaurant down. “I also like going Marlow & Sons for a beer. You know, it’s a hip, happening crowd. It’s very sexy and cool, and always crowded. I like to sit at the bar and just babe watch.”
