If you were dining at Ashok Bajaj’s popular Penn Quarter spot last night, you may have caught a familiar face in the crowd. A source confirms that actor Richard Gere attended a dinner at Rasika for the International Campaign for Tibet; Gere is the chairman for the nonprofit advocacy group.
The famed actor is known for his vegetarian-leaning tendencies, though he’s stated in past interviews that his diet isn’t entirely meatless. The table sampled a variety of chef Vikram Sunderam’s greatest hits, including palak chat (crispy spinach with yoghurt and date chutney), tandoori lamb chops, black cod, rice-based chicken biryani, and lentils. Chances are he knew the proper forks to use.
