Jennifer AnistonJennifer Aniston and John Mayer have sparked the usual romance rumours after they were spotted having a date-like lunch together on Friday, then held hands after dinner that evening.

The pair requested that Michael’s Genuine Food & Drink in Miami’s Design District opened their restaurant early so that they could enjoy a private late lunch around 3:30pm.

General manager Charles Bell told People magazine that Jennifer, who is filming Marley & Me in the city, ordered a chopped chicken salad but also ate some of John’s Serrano ham sandwich, before they shared a chocolate and peanut butter dessert: “I was happy to accommodate them.”

“I can’t speculate on what kind of meeting it was but they looked happy and seemed to have a great time.”

A waitress added to Us Weekly that the lunch “definitely seemed like a date”.

Later that evening, the pair were spotted dining together again at Casa Tua on South Beach.

The manager of the restaurant refused to be drawn on what happened over dinner, saying their discretion is “why we have celebrity guests”, but onlookers report that the pair left the hotel shortly before 1am on Saturday morning and walked back to their hotel, hand in hand.

Jennifer has recently been linked Orlando Bloom and a crew member on her recent film Travelling while John has been linked to Cameron Diaz and, more recently, Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger after splitting from Jessica Simpson last year.
