Nora EphronGothamist was walking by the uptown office's neighborhood joint, Cafe Luxembourg, when we spied writer-director Nora Ephron inside having brunch and animated conversation with tablemates (one probably being husband Nicholas Pileggi). Gothamist has literally going running on the sets of You've Got Mail during college and Nora Ephron lives at the Ansonia - a few blocks away from the uptown office - so Gothamist would like to feel she's a kindred spirit of sorts. But the jury is still out because of Ephron's increasingly treacly efforts (When Harry Met Sally to You've Got Mail - you do the math)...if there's another Meg Ryan-Tom Hanks pairing in the future, all bets are off.

Gothamist's favorite Nora Ephron movie: her first directorial effort, This is My Life. Some think that Ephron's writing "is nothing more than a dumbed-down female Woody Allen."

Al Pacino was just spotted at Cafe Luxembourg. Gothamist has seen him there before.
