Thankfully, Katie Holmes found the perfect bag to fit in all your newfound essentials, from a protective face mask to a bottle of hand sanitizer. Earlier this week, the actress was seen out with chef Emilio Vitolo Jr. in New York City, carrying a medium-sized white braided crochet bag, ideal for fitting in your phone, wallet, keys, any extra masks, hand sanitizer, gloves, and even goggles and plastic face shields (for those of us being extra careful amid the pandemic). Holmes also donned a printed cloth face mask and a casual gray T-shirt and lightwashed blue jeans.

"She seems smitten," a source told People about Holmes, adding that Vitolo Jr., who's also appeared on shows like Royal Pains and Inside Amy Schumer, is "fun and charismatic." Vitolo Jr. works at Emilio’s Ballato in New York City, which was bought by his father, Emilio Sr., in the early '90s.

My mother, who’s from Peru, would make us dishes like chicken and rice instead."
