Via a reader tip, we get the news that both Kanye West and Kim Kardashian popped into Cotogna yesterday afternoon, in advance of Kanye's headlining appearance at Outside Lands tonight, and once again I have to ask has every Hollywood agent/manager decided that Cotogna is the place that all celebrities must go in San Francisco? Because they all go there. Seriously. We have a lot of great restaurants, people. Someone tell Hollywood to spread the love a little.
Kanye apparently came in for lunch around 1:30 p.m., without Kim, yesterday afternoon, and perhaps had to dash off to a rehearsal because Kim was then spotted around 4:30 p.m., dining with a girlfriend or assistant or something.
There was, I'm sorry, no sighting of North West.
As I'm sure you remember (or may be trying to forget), Kimye got engaged at AT&T Park last October. The big event — which included fireworks, an orchestra, and a scoreboard proposal — was executed by San Francisco party planner Stanlee Gatti. According to the Chronicle, Ye met Gatti at — where else — Cotogna.
Anyway, our assumption that Kim would be in town for Kanye's OL appearance was correct! That's one rumor that can continue to spread.
However it looks like Jay-Z and Beyoncé have skipped town, so the rumor about them crashing Kanye's set can die.
