Katie Holmes was all smile while on a date with chef Emilio Vitolo a year after her split from Jamie Foxx.
Katie Holmes and Emilio Vitolo were out and about at one of SoHo’s Mediterranean hotspots, Antique Garage. As they looked happy together, was there something romantic brewing between the two?
Holmes, Vitolo looked happy in a date
In the photos TMZ obtained, Holmes was seen “grinning and laughing” while having a drink with Vitolo.
Vitolo is the chef at Emilio’s Ballato in SoHo, an old-school Italian restaurant famous among the celebs. According to Us Weekly, his father, Emilio Vitolo Sr., bought the eatery, frequented by A-list stars, like Justin Bieber, Rihanna, Bradley Cooper, and more.
The two only ordered a couple of glasses of wine. They had a good time, as seen on the face of Tom Cruise’s ex-wife.
She was cracking up laughing, making flirtatious faces, and even getting a little touchy.
The real stand between Katie Holmes, Vitolo’s relationship
A source told In Touch that the two already had a few dates before. However, no matter how cozy they looked, there was “nothing serious” between them yet.
“As of now, the pair is just having fun,” the insider revealed. “Emilio and his fiancée Rachel Emmons broke off their engagement very recently.”
Hence, Vitolo put his focus more on his restaurant. In an interview with InStyle, he revealed his passion for cooking.
He aims to follow his father’s footsteps, who is also exceptionally skilled when it comes to the culinary department.
Holmes, alternatively, is busy with her new upcoming projects. She recently promoted her latest film, The Secret: Dare to Dream on Instagram.
“If you know what you want, you can manifest your dreams,” she wrote in a post.
Holmes’ past romance with Foxx
After her split from Foxx in 2019, Holmes seemed to be enjoying her life as a single lady. The two secretly dated for six years before they officially ended things between them.
However, despite having a lengthy relationship, a source told Us they had no plans to get married.
“Katie and Jamie live a very private lifestyle and intend to keep it that way,” the insider explained. “They don’t plan on getting engaged anytime soon because they’re happy with how things are right now.”
Katie Holmes and Foxx first sparked breakup rumors in August 2019 after the latter was seen with two different women somewhere in Los Angeles.
