Whereabouts: Working Girl Katie Braves Date Night with Tom

Katie Holmes is an old pro at working in New York City then jetting to Los Angeles for family fun.

Countless cross-country leaps have been made by the actress and working mom, currently filming The Extra Man in Manhattan, most recently showing up in LA after a week of filming to have dinner with husband Tom Cruise and he and Nicole Kidman’s adopted daughter Isabella.

The couple hit swanky Italian eatery Il Sole, where the couple requested a high chair but ultimately showing up without adorable Suri. The pair dined with actor John Lithgow (Holmes’ costar in Broadway’s recent All My Sons) and his wife.

“Katie appeared tired and gaunt and didn’t say much throughout the meal,” an onlooker said.

Tom, however, was in great spirits, even popping into the kitchen to shake hands with the chef after their meal.

Katie must’ve gotten some rest, however. She and baby Suri had a mommy-and-me date the very next day for Brunch, at LA’s Le Pain Quotidien.
