Love is in the air in the Big Apple!

Vanessa Hudgens and Austin Butler looked completely smitten as they grabbed lunch at Boqueria Restaurant in New York City this Sunday. The normally PDA-happy kept their public smooches to a minimum and held hands as they crossed the street. 

V-Hud and her beau are currently working on separate projects in different cities, but that doesn’t mean distance is keeping this couple apart!

Vanessa flew up north to spend St. Patrick’s Day with her boyfriend this weekend. The 20-year-old actor is currently preparing to film Sex and the City prequel series, The Carrie Diaries, in New York while Vanessa is shooting Spring Breakers in sunny Florida.

We’re glad to see these lovebirds making it work — long distance and all!
