Oprah Winfrey was busy in Houston over the weekend at her big Oprah's The Life You Want Weekend at the Toyota Center, but a girl's gotta eat.

Wearing little makeup and with little fanfare, the superstar entertainment mogul headed to nearby Reef Saturday night. Owner/chef Bryan Caswell and his wife, Jennifer, posted pictures on Twitter of Winfrey with the couple's newborn at the restaurant located several blocks from the arena where the two-day seminar was held.

When asked if Winfrey ordered the restaurant's famous crab cakes, referencing the 2010 lunch in which hip hop superstar Jay Z famously told Caswell the restaurant's crab cakes were "legit,"  Jennifer Caswell tweeted, "nope! Fried mac n cheese though!"

On Friday, Winfrey's best friend, Gayle King, posted a photo on Instagram of Winfrey working out at a Houston hotel while watching CBS This Morning, which usually features King. The duo had just returned from Italy where they were photographed doing some heavy-duty shopping in Rome and touring the Sabatino Truffle factory in Umbria.
