â¢ Before hitting the beach with fiancÃ© Eric Johnson back on the west coast, Jessica Simpson was in Chicago enjoying some of the Windy City's most popular eateries. First up: the Paris Club, a trendy French restaurant where Simpson shared sweet moments with Johnson and laughed with a group of friends. The party also enjoyed 10 signature menu items, including goat cheese au gratin and coq au vin during their leisurely three-hour meal. The following night, it was off to nearby Hub 51, this time with a group of 15, where the happy couple stole kisses at the table as they sampled an array of dishes (spicy tuna rolls, chicken enchiladas and lemon icebox pie). Says an onlooker of the couple: "Eric even carried Jessica's designer bag while she was getting up to leave the table."
"I like my collar bone," she says, "so I like to show off my dÃ©colletage"

That night, Simpson and Johnson stepped out again, this time for dinner at hotspot ABC Kitchen.

Simpson and Johnson were very affectionate at their table, constantly finding ways to touch each other. The group also toasted with champagne and serenaded Cobb with "Happy Birthday." Simpson's spirits were very high, a source says, as she celebrated her friend's birthday with her new man. The couple also stayed until closing, leaving hand-in-hand, just as they arrived.
