Harvey Weinstein was spotted out to lunch and away from his rehabilitation facility with an unidentified female companion on Monday.
And unlike the last few times the fallen mogul has stepped out into the public eye, this time he did it without any of his clever disguises, TMZ reported.?
The 65-year-old was spotted dining in a Los Angeles Dodgers T-shirt, despite being in enemy territory at Babbo Italian Eatery in Glendale, Arizona.?
The restaurant is just 40 minutes outside Phoenix where the Arizona Diamondbacks - the Dodgers rival team- plays.?
His lady friend was equally casual in a fuchsia workout top and a pair of Nike joggers.?

The 65-year-old was spotted dining in a Los Angeles Dodgers T-shirt, despite being in enemy territory at Babbo Italian Eatery in Glendale, Arizona (pictured)?
Weinstein and the raven-haired woman had the entire restaurant to themselves, and likely dined on lasagna or a calzone, a couple of Babbo's specialties, while watching the Cardinals play the Rams.?
TMZ noted that he looked slimmer than he looked before going into rehabilitation - and despite the restaurant's extensive wine list stayed away from all alcoholic beverages.
Weinstein has only been spotted a handful of time since he fled New York City the day after he was first accused of assault and harassment in a New York Times expose.
He was seen slurping on some soup at Chestnut, a farm-to-table restaurant in Phoenix in early November and then in California a week later. Throughout the mean he managed to keep a low profile despite the fact that over 100 women have now accused him of sexual harassment and/or assault.
That feat was accomplished in large part because of his disguise, with Weinstein wearing a blond wig over his bald head and orange makeup covering his face before heading out in public.?
His guest also appeared to be wearing a wig, with the man keeping a hand on the side of his head during their meal.?

The disgraced mogul looked shockingly calm even though an investigation into sexual assault allegations against him ramped up on Monday.?
The investigation is moving forward,?NYPD chief detective Robert Boyce said Monday without giving a timeline for possible charges.

'This case is going forward right now,' he told a briefing, citing regular communication with Manhattan district attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. though with no details on timing.
'There has been no determination on where its going to go, or what timeline has been done as to when it's going to go to a grand jury,' the New York Police Department staffer explained.
Boyce said he has sent detectives to Los Angeles on the multi-front case.
'I have two detectives in LA right now. I have sent them to Paris. I have sent them pretty much around the world ... More women coming out: its a good thing. We see a decided increase in the people coming forward and having faith,' he stressed.??
This news comes almost one month after a report emerged claiming that the district attorney's?office was looking to present a case the following week to the the grand jury in hopes of indicting Weinstein on a number of charges stemming from his alleged rapes of actress de la Huerta in 2010.
'We have a credible and detailed narrative, and even though the incident occurred seven years ago there has been corroboration from a number of individuals,' said Chief of Detectives Robert Boyce around that time.
He went on to reveal that investigators contacted the district attorney's office soon after they interviewed de la Huerta and 'started working the case together.'?
Weinstein is accused of sexually assaulting the actress on two occasions, but has denied any and all allegations of non-consensual sex through his spokesperson.?
The actress reported the incidents to authorities on October 25, and was found to be a strong and credible witness.???
