Newlyweds Leighton Meester (“Gossip Girl”) and Adam Brody (“The OC”) had brunch Saturday at Little Market Brasserie at the Talbott Hotel in the Gold Coast. Meester is in Chicago rehearsing with James Franco (“127 Hours”) and Chris O’Dowd (“Bridesmaids”) for Broadway’s “Of Mice and Men,” which is directed by Steppenwolf’s Anna D. Shapiro and begins performances in New York March 19.
On Feb 17, Meester and O’Dowd watched The Second City Touring Company show at The Second City. O’Dowd had dinner Feb. 14 at Jake Melnick’s Corner Tap and again on Wednesday.
Franco spoke at Northwestern’s law school Wednesday with poet Frank Bidart. My colleague Chris Jones reported that the show's representative said the cast has been enjoying Michigan Avenue restaurants during its stay.
