— DIANE CLEHANE

Sorry, but you can’t expect dish about an Oscar winner every week. (We’re still reeling from our brush with Cate Blanchett in the dining room last Wednesday!) We’re chalking it up to school vacations, but the scene was relatively quiet at Michael’s today where the regulars had to be contented dishing with their dates rather than people watching.

Because we aim to please, I’ll fill you in on who has been spotted in the dining room since we filed our last column. On Friday, I was thrilled to be seated near Whoopi Goldberg, Bette Midler, Marlo Thomas, Liz Smith (looking better than ever!) and Cynthia McFadden. I don’t know if the feeling was mutual since I had my six year-old with me. Yesterday, my pal and accessory maven Mickey Ateyeh popped in with designer Carlos Falchi and actress Brenda Vaccaro. Here’s hoping there’s more to report next week!

Here’s the rundown on today’s crowd:

1. Media Advisory Group’s chairman Jack Myers with Dave Jackson and Orlando Reece of Grab Networks.

2. Men’s Health honcho David Zinczenko and The New York Post’s media guru Keith Kelly. Before Keith arrived, I caught up with David at the bar. David  is among the Elaine’s loyalists who are completely aghast at Michael Wolff’s vicious depiction of  the late Elaine Kaufman in the March issue of British GQ. According to an item on Page Six today, Wolff likens the beloved restaurateur to a ”low class madam” and describes the food at her iconic celebrity haunt as “inedible.” Very nice.

3. Producer Jean Doumanian and a pal we didn’t get to meet.

4.  The Metropolitan Museum’s John O’Keefe (loved the bow tie!) who passed the time waiting for his lunch date, Tim Mulligan, by sipping chardonnay and skimming the latest issue of Star.

New NYMag.com Feature Product Of New Media Deals

At last week’s Mediabistro Circus, Magnify.net CEO Steve Rosenbaum and NYMag.com GM Michael Silberman discussed the kind of multi-platform deals that media companies are seeking out in order to be competitive. In today’s digital world, many of these deals involve new media concepts like video integration.

Now you can check out the fruit of a deal between Rosenbaum and Silberman: NYMag.com’s video player. The videos on the Web site include original content produced by staffers at New York magazine and its Web site, as well as videos snagged from other sources that would be of interest to NYMag.com visitors, like a clip of Jimmy Fallon interviewing Mark-Paul Gosselaar in character as Zack Morris or Jason Jones‘ “Daily Show” piece about The New York Times.

Our favorites are Tim Murphy‘s man on the street videos. Check out his clip about the opening of High Line. It’s definitely not substandard.
