Mel Gibson and Gerard Butler were spotted with a large group Thursday night at Zuma. Both, we’re told, were dressed casually and “in a great mood.” Gibson had a 28 oz. Tomahawk Wagyu with truffle and seemed to enjoy it so much that “it was chewed to the bone.” Butler, says our spy, “seemed a little reserved and mostly interacted with a group of beautiful ladies accompanying him at the table, occasionally gathering the crowd for a cigarette” outside on the waterfront terrace.
