Jennifer Aniston and John Mayer were just spotted all cozy in a booth at Michael's Genuine Food & Drink. They came in at 3:30---the resto closes for lunch at 3, but when you're a star anything's possible and the kitchen was reopened just for them. Says our source, they were sitting across from one another and,for those who must know these things, Mayer had Serrano Ham Sandwich (which Aniston took a bite of) while she had chopped salad with chicken. They also shared the Candy Bar dessert-- dark chocolate, peanut butter, more chocolate. While there may be no such thing as a free lunch, this one sure sounds suspicious to us, too, unless they're both clients of, say, It's Just Lunch, that benign matchmaking company that feeds lonely hearts. But it's never really "just lunch", especially when you're both tabloid fixtures, right? Says our source, "They were across from each other but were face to face---very close to each other's faces, clearly having private conversations." They left around 5:20 p.m. and, according to our source, "It sure looked like they were on a date." Hmm, eating in a restaurant that's not open to the public, sharing bites of sandwiches and a cutesy, sweet dessert? Sure sounds like a date to us. And eureka! According to reader David, the duo was seen walking away from Genius Jones (the ki's clothing store) a little after five. "They were arm in arm with a bald security guy ten steps behind them. They were definitely on a date and they had no idea anyone was watching because thse street was near empty." Busted! Update: On Friday night, Mayer and Aniston had dinner at Casa Tua. And on another note, Perez Hilton's nomenclature will finally come to fruition if, indeed, the duo make it past the three date mark. Mayer+Aniston=Maniston. Or, as someone else suggested, AniMayer, which we think is too much of a mouthful.
On another note, we also happen to think Aniston should date her charming security detail, Scott. Jen, he's right under your nose. What are you waiting for?
