Chace Crawford enjoyed a leisurely late lunch in New York City on Saturday. The former Gossip Girl star and a male friend were spotted at ABC Kitchen, Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s celeb favorite restaurant.

Crawford – looking casual in jeans, a T-shirt and baseball cap – decided on the house roasted turkey sandwich with applewood smoked bacon, arugula and jalapeño, which he said sealed the deal for him. His pal had the Akaushi cheeseburger (which is known as Oprah‘s favorite burger) with herbed mayonnaise. They both sipped ice tea and bottled water.

The pair tapped at their phones and chatted throughout the lunch, discussing potential projects for Crawford, though it didn’t seem like a business lunch.

Crawford wasn’t the only famous face enjoying ABC Kitchen, which is known for using only locally sourced, sustainable and organic ingredients. Nearby, chef Mario Batali was checking out the competition with a group.
