Kim ventured out of the Ritz-Carlton hotel in Manhattan … and headed for Pete’s turf — Staten Island. Sources with direct knowledge tell TMZ … the 2 entered the backdoor of Campania restaurant … one of Pete’s favorites.
They presumably chowed down on pizza or pasta … the specialty at the joint.
It’s a big development because everyone wanted to know if they’d meet up after sharing a ride at Knott’s Berry Farm in the O.C. over the weekend … where they held hands on a ride.
As you know … Pete and Kim were together for almost a week when she hosted “Saturday Night Live” last month … even sharing a kiss during a skit.
We got Kim out earlier in the day Tuesday and asked if she and Pete were more than just friends, but she was mum.
A few days ago our Kim sources said Kim and Pete were just friends. Thing we want to know now … define “friends.”
