Was Jennifer Lopez and Bradley Cooper's Per Se dinner a date, per se?
"It was a date," an insider tells Us Weekly of the unexpected duo's private , two-hour meal Saturday at one of NYC's most expensive (and romantic) restaurants, where the $275-per-person price fixe is popular.
Cooper, 36, "has been after her for ages -- calling her for a while," the insider adds. (Cooper and Lopez, 42, were photographed gabbing together at a 2010 Fashion show.)
Will they meet again? "We'll see," the insider says.
The New York Post's Page Six reports that newly-single Lopez "turned up in a white bandage dress looking ridiculously hot" for the meal, and she and Cooper seemed to be "heavily flirting" as they chowed down.
(Lopez and Marc Anthony announced the end of their seven-year marriage in July.) A rep for Cooper (who split with Renee Zellweger in March) said the meal was "for business regarding a project."
