Charlie Sheen and ex-wife Denise Richards were all smiles as they emerged arm-in-arm from a New York restaurant together this week, TMZ reported Friday.

Richards tweeted she shared a "nice mellow dinner" with the actor at Da Tommaso Italian restaurant in Manhattan's theater district Thursday night.

HOT SHOTS: Denise Richards

The pair, who were married from 2002 to 2006, have been spotted together recently as Sheen, 46, recovers from the highly-publicized drug-and-alcohol-fueled meltdown and ouster from his hit "Two and a Half Men" sitcom earlier this year.

Richards has said that the flagrant partying on display during Sheen's downward spiral did not represent "the person that I met and fell in love with."

"The man I fell in love with is very compassionate, humble and has a very wonderful heart," she said in a "Today" show interview in July.

Richards, 40, is in New York to film a guest role on NBC's "30 Rock."
