"They were sitting in the bar all cuddly. He pushed her chair in for her and everything," an eyewitness told Us Weekly.
Another source said: "They were interlocked the whole time they were sitting at the counter, like arms wrapped around each other's backs. At one point… they had either just kissed or were super close talking."
The pair are said to be making no attempt at hiding their affection for one another and have also been spotted liking each other's Instagram posts in recent weeks.
Lea split from boyfriend Matthew Paetz in February
News of Lea's relationship comes almost three months after it emerged she had parted ways from her boyfriend of nearly two years, Matthew Paetz. The male model was reportedly the one to initiate the break up, leaving Lea "crushed".
Following the split Lea has been focusing on her career, and has been in the studio recording new music. The 29-year-old also unveiled two new tattoos – one of which honours her late boyfriend Cory Monteith, who would have turned 34 on Wednesday.
Lea proved that Cory would always hold a special place in her heart by getting an inking of the number five – the American football team his character Finn played for in Glee.
During the same session at Prospect Tattoos in New York, Lea unveiled another tattoo, this time in honour of her grandmother. The actress explained that her grandmother had tragically passed away earlier in the week, in a heartfelt post which she shared on Instagram.
