“Twilight” werewolf heartthrob Alex Meraz celebrated the release of “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 2” with an appearance at chef Carla Pellegrino’s Meatball Spot in Town Square on Saturday night.
Meraz, who arrived with wife Kim on his arm and portrays Paul in the blockbuster series (“Breaking Dawn, Part 2,” starring Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner, opened over the weekend with an estimated $141 million), wore dark jeans and a fitted black jacket.
The hunky wolf pack member devoured classic meatballs with spicy meat sauce, a classic Italian pizza with artichokes, prosciutto, black olives and cheese and Panzanella Salad with cucumber, tomato and feta. For dessert, the couple enjoyed a peanut butter cup ice cream sandwich and a black and white milkshake with chocolate sauce.
While sipping on Chianti, Meraz greeted hundreds of fans and happily posed for photographs and signed autographs. Also dining at Meatball Spot on Saturday night: Britney Spears’ manager Larry Rudolph, who enjoyed chicken meatballs with classic tomato sauce, turkey meatballs with parmesan cream sauce, a Roman-style pepperoni and pineapple pizza and a Cookie Explosion milkshake.
Pellegrino is currently competing in Season 10 of Bravo’s “Top Chef” in Seattle. Thanks to Jeff Ragazzo of WireImage for his photo gallery.
