KATIE Holmes passionately kissed restaurateur Emilio Vitolo Jr, confirming her new love interest.
The actress, 41, has moved on with the chef a year after her split from actor Jamie Foxx.
The giddy couple dined at an outside table at the Peasant Restaurant in Manhattan on Sunday night.
Katie jumped into Emilio’s lap and put her arm around him, as the couple laid on the PDA.
Both wore white t-shirts and jeans as Emilio gazed lovingly into his girlfriend’s eyes, resting his arm around her waist.
The both giggled like school children and could not hide their affection for each other on the balmy fall night.
Katie went make-up free and wore her hair in a loss bun above her head, as Emilio chose to cover up in a white newsboy cap.
The Dawson’s Creek actress, who is usually very private about her personal, could not hide her feelings for the restaurateur.
The new couple first sparked rumours of a relationship after they were spotted last week on a date in New York.
They were spotted sipping wine and giggling, at Antique Garage in New York City on Tuesday, September 4.
The actress has been stepping out all over the Big Apple, and was recently spotted showing off her bra in a see-through top.
Earlier last month, Katie was caught wearing matching baggie jeans with Suri, her 14-year-old daughter with ex-husband Tom Cruise.
Katie and Jamie broke up in May 2019 after dating for roughly six years.
The former couple, who kept their romance hush-hush, finally confirmed their status as a couple at the 2019 Met Gala – just a few months before their split.
Though Jamie soon stepped out with Sela Vave, a 21-year-old singer, Katie has seemingly remained single- until now.
Emilio works at Emilio’s Ballato which his family has owned since the 90s and is a favourite SoHo with big name celebrities such as, Rihanna, Scarlett Johansson and Lenny Kravitz.
His restaurant is a favourite of Oscar winner Whoopi Goldberg and the chef counts Joe Jonas a good pal.
While Emilio co-owns and cooks at his dad’s famous restaurant, he has hopes of becoming a star on the silver screen.
He has had roles in films such as Tapestry and the upcoming, The Birthday Cake.
Emilio has also had parts in TV series, Inside Amy Schumer and Royal Pains.
