The pair ran into Delicatessen in SoHo in an attempt to escape paparazzi on Wednesday afternoon. Page Six reports that LaBeouf grabbed one of the restaurant’s servers and begged him to help them hide.
Whizzing through a packed dining room, the server brought them downstairs and out through a service exit, where a cab picked the couple up on Prince Street. “Shia was super-nice and hugged the server in a show of thanks,” said Delicatessen chef Michael Ferraro.
While Shia didn’t seem to be in a “panic” yesterday, he tried to avoid having his picture taken yesterday at Robeks in Sherman Oaks, CA while he was picking up a smoothie with his girlfriend. Later on the in the while he was outside the Jimmy Kimmel Live studios, he wasn’t quite so guarded.
