Forget the classic double date: Renée Zellweger and Bradley Cooper enjoyed a group dinner with five celebrity couples at Street, a restaurant in Hollywood. The duo was joined by John Krasinski and Emily Blunt; Amy Poehler and Will Arnett; Jason Bateman and wife Amanda; Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard; and Jimmy Kimmel and his blonde date. According to an observer, Blunt and Krasinski “were making out at the table at one point,” while another engaged couple, Shepard and Bell, “were being cute together.” Everyone sat next to their dates except for Bradley and Renée, who sat across from each other. They also snuck out earlier than the other guests, the observer says, while the rest of the group spent more than three hours sampling the menu, laughing and fielding visits from future Top Chef Masters competitor, and restaurant owner, chef Susan Feniger.
