Deadbeat Dolphin Ricky Williams headed to the new Michael's Kitchen at the Newport Beachside Hotel & Resort in Sunny Isles Beach. Williams had promised Head Chef Michael Blum he would visit the new location after frequenting the old Hollywood hot spot. The running back dined in with a no-name girlfriend in tow. The couple feasted on popcorn rock shrimp, pear salad, veggie penne and three-cheese smoked black truffle macaroni. Not a celebratory occasion, the pair sipped two bottles of Badoit sparkling water (although who knows if Williams and his gal blazed up on the ride over). On his way out the door, Williams claimed he would do his best to get the rest of the team in there soon ... but something tells me the team ain’t so concerned with what Williams has to say these days. -- Tracy Block
