Lunch with a crunch!

Chris Rock and Bobby Cannavale had lunch Tuesday at Jacob's Pickles in New York.

At the restaurant – which specializes in Southern comfort food – the actors both opted for the same delicious dish: the honey chicken and pickles sandwich made with buttermilk fried chicken and served on a biscuit.

"They were extremely receptive to autograph seekers and seemed to want to be noticed," fellow diner Verne Isom tells PEOPLE.

The comedian-actor and the Boardwalk Empire star costarred in last year's production of The Motherf–er with the Hat on Broadway.

Chris Rock was spotted on Monday leaving New York City’s Trump International Hotel with his 5-year-old daughter Zahra with wife Malaak Compton-Rock, a nanny and an unidentified little girl.

Her unknown identity prompted tabloid speculation that Rock, 45, who has another daughter, Lola, 7, also with his wife, had fathered the girl out of wedlock.

Tabloids also drew a connection between a 2007 paternity suit filed by a Georgia woman, Kali Bowyer, who claimed Rock was the father of her then-13-year-old son. DNA tests later proved that was not the case.

Sounds like the odds of landing your favorite star – Daniel Day-Lewis, anyone? – on the line during the Hope for Haiti Now telethon are pretty great.

The Friday night global event features "the biggest bank of faces that you recognize answering the phones," founder and co-host George Clooney tells the media, adding that many of the celebs are taking part "not to be on the show, simply to answer the phones."

Some 140 celebrities have signed up for the two-hour telethon, set to air at 8 p.m. on Friday and stream live on the Web. And the participating group reads like a Who's Who of entertainment, media and politics.

"He's the greatest host in the world," said Rock, 44, at the Cinema Society event sponsored by Target. "I would never make a disparaging comment about David Letterman."
