Did Kristen Stewart get a taste of her own medicine over the weekend?

Robert Pattinson was photographed chatting up a pretty blonde woman in a blurry new snapshot taken in the wee hours of Saturday Oct. 6 at NYC's Electric Room Bar, inside the celeb-beloved Dream Hotel.

Naturally, fans quickly speculated that the 26-year-old is reconsidering his reconciliation with   Stewart (who cheated on him with director Rupert Sanders in July) -- but multiple sources explain to Us Weekly that the British star's night out was an innocent one.

"He stayed at Electric Room late," one insider says, noting he and the as-yet-unidentified blonde chatted "in a friendly way, nothing more. He kept to himself mostly."

"He was hanging out with some friends," adds a second observer, noting that the Breaking Dawn star wore his "winter hat" and "was chatting with a table of people drinking beers . . . there were girls and guys there."

Some of his pals on hand included BFF Tom Sturridge, his fiancee (and new mom) Sienna Miller -- plus Gossip Girl's Michelle Trachtenberg, to whom he was briefly reintroduced.

"Rob was in his own world with his friends," the first source says. "He also looked scared of the world. He seemed a bit timid."

Earlier in the night, Pattinson and Sturridge, 26, hit the IFC Film Dinner at the Time Warner Center, where the pair "had a few beers," according to a third eyewitness. "He was in a good mood," the witness says.

Pattinson's on-again love Stewart, meanwhile, stayed behind in Los Angeles. On Sunday, the 22-year-old was spotted at the Florence + The Machines show at the Hollywood Bowl with her dad, John.

Why haven't Stewart and Pattinson -- now living together again -- been spotted out and about together?

"They're afraid of backlash, so they're keeping things on the down-low," a pal explains.
