Girls night!

Newlywed Jennifer Aniston is back to work — but that doesn’t mean she can’t indulge in a little down time with friends.

The actress, who is in Atlanta shooting her upcoming film Mother’s Day, popped into the city’s Ecco restaurant with a group of female pals on Saturday. The group was “very casual and relaxed,” a source tells PEOPLE.  “The table ordered a few wood-fired pizzas and a couple of pasta dishes, which they all shared. [And they enjoyed] lots of laughs.”

Located in Atlanta’s midtown neighborhood, the hotspot is known for their Mediterranean and Italian dishes such as house made mozzarella and basil pizza and spaghetti with arugula, mascarpone, black pepper and pecorino.

The source adds, Aniston “sat in full view of the restaurant [and] asked for no special service or privacy.”

The outing marked off a joy-filled month for Aniston, who wed Justin Theroux in early August (Theroux is also hard at work, having returned to the set of HBO’s The Leftovers following the couple’s idyllic honeymoon in Bora Bora).

Thank you Aniston’s hardworking publicist & PR team for this riveting report about this incredibly boring woman. No mention about her hair, aka the only thing she talks about?

What a pr fluff story! The public just does not care about her, this is of course supported by the fact her latest film could only manage $67,000 in earnings, can’t even crack 100,000, yet alone 1 million. Her last few films have failed at the box office.

Her publicist is not quite on the ball, he forgot to add that she is happier than ever & glowing! No article about hair girl is ever complete without that. Her pr team says she glows so much, she may need to get that checked out!!!

If you are complaining about Jennifer Aniston you better be complaining about the disgusting levels of publicity the Kartrashians force with stupid People magazine who publishes on them like there is no tomorrow. The dumbest stories and keeping them famous for being trash.

Sounds like People is getting info from Restaurant staff, not her publicist. Jen didn’t give them a morsel regarding her wedding and I doubt this is worthy news for any reason. Desperation on People’s part.
