Chew through this: Courtney Love goes from grunge to gourmand at Michael's Genuine

Courtney Love, in town for the Hole show at the Fillmore, shattered all previous images of her as a hard partying, post punk relic of the grunge rock movement by heading not to Club Deuce or some raucous South Beach night spot, but to Michael's Genuine Food & Drink last night for a late night dinner with the band. We knew she had a sharp tongue, but a sophisticated palate? Recently blaming her latest dramatic weight loss on Gwyneth Paltrow's macrobiotic cook, Love was on a mission to fatten up last night and, well, mission accomplished. Arriving with the band at 11:30 p.m., Love and co., whose late arrival from The Raleigh forced the kitchen to gladly stay open later, requested an outside table. According to our spy, "You can tell she is a total foodie, explaining to her band some of the dishes and specifically saying she was excited to taste pastry chef Hedy Goldsmith's famous popcorn ice cream." A foodie, huh? Not quite the adjective we'd use to describe her, but you learn something every day. Next week, we may find out that Kim Kardashian is a Rhodes Scholar.  In addition to the ice cream, Love scarfed oysters, duck rillette and a BLT salad. A far cry from blow and black tar, huh? But was she sober? "Actually," says our spy. "She was. Well at first." Now that's more like it.
