Katie Holmes struggles to cross the icy streets of New York following snow storm… after beau Emilio Vitolo slams outdoor dining suspension

Katie Holmes is proceeding with caution after New York City was hit with the first snowstorm of the season on Wednesday. 

On Thursday morning, the 41-year-old Dawson’s Creek darling was seen warring with the city’s snow-covered streets as she tried to make her way in Soho. 

The ice-trudging outing comes one day after her restaurateur beau, Emilio Vitolo, launched a tirade against Governor Cuomo as he and thousands of other restaurants owners fear going out of business due to the city’s suspension of outdoor dining. 

S’no fun:  Katie Holmes, 41, struggles to cross the snow-covered streets of NYC following the city’s first heavy storm after restaurateur boyfriend Emilio Vitolo slammed the Governor for outdoor dining suspension

Bundled up in a chic black wool coat and a pair of leggings, Holmes grasped her tote bag and coffee while trying to safely cross the street. 

Wearing knee high black snow boots with rubber soles, Katie tried to navigate the precarious journey. 

She tied up her dark brown hair into a loose bun and appeared to be relatively makeup-free while dodging the icy streets.

Just last night Katie’s boyfriend Vitolo – whose father owns Emilio’s Ballato – expressed his outrage at the Governor’s decision to suspend outdoor dining on account of the weather for two weeks. 

The decision came to be on Wednesday after it was previously mandated Monday that all indoor dining would be shut down to slow the rise of Coronavirus cases. 

With thousands of restaurants unable to host any patrons for the foreseeable future and many financially strapped and afraid for their business, Vitolo could not help but fume over the situation on Instagram.

 Filming himself walking through his empty restaurant he wrote: 

‘We all going to be out of business you f*** face……Only place you’re going to be able to get food is McDonald’s or Taco Bell,’ as he tagged the Governor on Instagram. 

He added, ‘can’t f***ing catch a break,’ as he used a bunch of emotive emojis including a crying face and boxing gloves.

Like many restaurants the Italian eatery was forced to remove their outdoor dining structures to make snow clean up easier, which provided another set back for places with elaborate street infrastructure. 

Holmes and her younger beau were first linked back in August as they were seen packing on the PDA on a date, prompting him to break up with his then fiancee before the photos surfaced. 

The pair are frequently seen spending time at the restaurant with his father, with things recently getting serious to the point where people were concerned it was moving too fast. 

‘She doesn’t care what people may say about rushing into the romance…she’s already decided it’s got the potential to go all the way,’ a source told Us Weekly.
