What food budget? Gwyneth Paltrow may have stated last week that she would live off a food budget of less than $5 a day, but is that over before it started? Or did she finish it already?

The actress and her rumored boyfriend Brad Falchuk were spotted on a date in Los Angeles on April 14, dining on a barbeque-themed menu of pig ears, veal tongues and fried rabbit legs. We're no experts, but that doesn't sound cheap.

"They were sitting together, very cozy and romantic," an observer at Animal restaurant told PEOPLE. "He was totally rapt by everything she was saying. They were totally on a date."

The romantic dinner came just a few days after Gwyneth announced that she would participate in the Food Bank for New York City's challenge of living off a $29 food budget for one week to bring attention to the struggles faced by families that live on food stamps.

Other celebrities were also challenged to slash their food budget.

"We're walking in their shoes to see how far we get," Gwyneth tweeted on April 9.

Maybe Gwyneth finished her week-long challenge? Or maybe she found a loophole since, we're assuming, Brad paid.
