Owen Wilson and Kate Hudson popped up at a trendy Manhattan restaurant on Monday night. The couple sat side by side as they noshed at Craft eatery, a New York City restaurant where folks come to see and be seen.

"They were at a four-seat table and he ended up sitting beside her," a witness told The ShowBuzz. "They just sat there and ate, they were pretty engaged the entire time. Just engaged in conversation."

The couple walked in the restaurant around 8 o'clock and no one seemed to notice them, said the witness, "people left them alone." Wilson sat on the outside of the table, said the spy, sometimes shielding the actress from view.

Wilson donned a cap and ski-type vest and Hudson wore a brown colored frock. "They just sat there facing one another and talking," said the witness. "They were not at a secluded table, they were out in the open."

After a brief meal, the pair exited the restaurant around 9:30pm.

Hudson split from her husband, musician Chris Robinson, last year. People magazine reported that Hudson visited a costume store in Manhattan with her son Ryder over the weekend.

Earlier this month, the magazine reported that Wilson and Hudson were "all over each other" at a restaurant in Santa Monica.
