East Hampton was the place to be last weekend, when the low-key spots drew their share of celebs.

Magician Penn Jillette of Penn and Teller (he’s the bigger, mouthier half of the duo) took his family to Turtle Crossing Friday night. He ordered the smoked meat platter, learning about the kind of magic that happens when pork goes into a wood smoker.

On Saturday, Katie Lee (food personality, cookbook author and Billy Joel’s ex) was seen having an early dinner with friends at Rowdy Hall. She had a bowl of vegetarian chili at a table overlooking the courtyard.
