Lenny Kravitz knows what’s good on the menu at Mr. Chow - and, on Wednesday night, it was Alicia Keys. The strapping soul man looked like he wanted to wrap the hazel-eyed Hell’s Kitchen delicacy in a moo shu pancake and devour her as they sat side by side in a booth at the E. 57th St. celebreteria.
Popping morsels into his mouth was all Alicia could do to keep him at bay.
Yes, there were others at their table. But, laughing and talking to each other, the two gorgeous Grammy winners seemed, at times, to barely notice them.
Keys’ spokesman described Kravitz as a “friend” of the singer. The rep declined to say whether she was still dating Kerry Brothers, Alicia’s partner in her production company, Krucial Keys.
Keys would certainly fit nicely into Kravitz’s collection of famous girlfriends, who include Nicole Kidman, Kylie Minogue, Adriana Lima and Vanessa Paradis.
Professionally, Keys has surrounded herself with some other talented guys while cutting her “Unplugged” album. Common, Mos Def and Adam Levine all chime in on the acoustic set she did for MTV, which aired on Friday.
