Nicole Richie seems to have a new pal – or, at least a dining companion – in Lauren Conrad. After lunching together at popular L.A. eatery Joan’s On Third recently (along with fellow Hills star Audrina Patridge), the pair met up again – this time for dinner Sunday at Café Sushi in Los Angeles.

The friends greeted each other warmly, and as they sat and pored over the menu, mom-to-be Richie was especially cautious about what she was eating (she eventually settled on green salad and a salmon tempura roll).
