A new romance might just be starting to blossom for Orlando Bloom.

The Pirates of the Caribbean star, 38, sat down for lunch with L.A. stylist Chloe Bartoli on Wednesday – and the outing at Bui, a popular sushi restaurant in Malibu, sparked romance rumors.

The duo attempted to duck out of the restaurant separately, according to X17, but were caught together after the meal looking casual in T-shirts and shorts.

The morning after their lunch date, the pair were spotted together as Bloom picked up coffee for two. (Bartoli, 25, has been a longtime friend of Bloom’s ex, supermodel Miranda Kerr.)

Earlier this summer, the English actor and father of four-year-old son Flynn was cozy with Brazilian model Luisa Moraes (also during a sushi date.)

Bartoli has also spent her summer season in the spotlight. She made headlines when photos emerged of her getting close with Scott Disick while on a French getaway in July. Shortly after the photos surfaced Disick and his girlfriend of nearly a decade, Kourtney Kardashian, called it quits.
