According to a source speaking to E! News, Ben and Jen got together at the Hungry Cat restaurant in Santa Monica, California, to have dinner and drinks in a low-key environment, arriving in the same car about 8:30 p.m. and leaving together about an hour and a half later.
That's right — no co-parenting, no kids, nothin' but them!
The insider reveals that the pair comes to that restaurant "often," but sources say it's not a date or anything romantic — the two are firmly, fully, just friends.
