The pair joined Jerry and Jessica Seinfeld at the exclusive upper east side eatery, for a nearly three-hour-long meal. Along with plates of rustic Italian food and red wine, the foursome shared plenty of laughs.
In addition to Holmes entertaining the table with her animated storytelling, Cruise and Seinfeld cracked a few jokes.
The Seinfelds left the restaurant first, leaving Cruise and Holmes to collect themselves before hitting the onslaught of paparazzi waiting outside.
Earlier in the afternoon, Holmes got in touch with her creative side (not to mention undeniable love for fashion) by visiting the fabric store Mood. Holmes and Suri spent a lengthy amount of time picking out material – lots of creams and dark khaki as well as wool fabrics – to get suits made for herself and Tom.
