The Oscar-winning actress couldn’t contain her joy as she shared a grin with Maroney while the two enjoyed their date. Before their evening was over, the pair were seen sharing a kiss at their sidewalk table.

A source told PEOPLE at the time the two “looked very comfortable.”

She is smiling like I have never seen her do with any of her previous boyfriends,” the source said, adding the two have “great chemistry” and were “holding hands and laughing” while spending time together.

Maroney works in the New York art scene and reps clients such as Lena Dunham’s father, Carroll. He is a director at Gladstone 64, the Gladstone Gallery’s Upper East Side location in the famed Edward Durell Stone House.

After admitting she still loves Aronofsky in February, Lawrence explained on WTF with Marc Maron that she’s on good terms with all her former beaus.

“I’m friends with all my exes, actually,” she said. “For the most part, yeah, I have a theory: I think it’s because I’m blunt. I don’t think that you can have any sort of bad relationship with anybody if you’re just blunt.”
