75 Main was the place to spot a celeb over the weekend.

On Sunday, former House Speaker and current United States House of Representatives Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi enjoyed a late lunch.

The United States House of Representatives Minority Leader entered 75 Main through the restaurant's back entrance, and according to observers, had a tense lunch with a male patron. On a lighter note, "Today" show co-host Hoda Kotb, her boyfriend Financier Joel Shiffman, and New York Giants Co-Owner Jonathan Tisch were also spotted at the Hamptons eatery on Sunday.
