Their dinner may have been an early celebration for Fournier’s birthday.
The model turned 23 on Saturday, August 28. The Friends alum posted a number of photos on Instagram to wish her a happy birthday.
The couple started dating earlier this year after Sprouse broke up with actress and Riverdale co-star Lili Reinhart last year.
The actors played love interests on the show which is currently in its fifth season.

Fournier and Sprouse also celebrated his birthday earlier this month with a laundry list of famous friends.
Notable stars on the guest list were director Taika Waitit, actor Darren Criss and Sprouse’s Riverdale co-star KJ Apa.
Sprouse is lucky to get a respite from his busy schedule. In addition to his work on Riverdale, the actor also filmed a part for Moonshot, an upcoming science fiction film about a woman who chases after her boyfriend after he moves to Mars.
The film will also feature actors Zach Braff and Lukas Gage.

Sprouse is also getting ready to shoot Undercover, a movie about a father who gets into a custody battle with his ex while simultaneously working in a cover band with an unprofessional musician. Sprouse will play the younger musician opposite of Zachary Levi.
This comes after KJ Apa says there’s ‘a lot of baggage’ that comes with success.
The Riverdale star has said he’s ‘so grateful’ for his role as Archie Andrews on the CW drama series, but also believes his fame has made it difficult to talk to others, because they often don’t see him as an ‘actual person’.

He said: ‘There’s been so much pressure in playing Archie. I’m so grateful for the show and its success, but at the same time, there’s a lot of baggage that comes with that success. I feel like the only people I can talk to about my issues are my co-stars, the people who can really relate to me.’
KJ particularly praised Sprouse– who plays Jughead Jones – for helping him through his newfound fame, as the 28-year-old actor has been in the spotlight since he was a child.
He continued: ‘Cole is an amazing person to have on set, because he’s been doing this his whole life. I try and look at it from a fan’s perspective to understand the way they think. But there are times when I’m like, ‘Wow, they really have no idea that we are actual people. They can’t separate us from our characters.’
‘You don’t have that in other professions. You don’t dissect the life of a builder and start judging the decisions he makes in his life with his wife and kids. As an actor, I will be judged on everything: my political opinions, my opinions on drugs, my opinions on the people I want to be with. Everything. It’s something I’ve had to come to terms with.’
