Click to return to TMZ.comVanessa Minnillo just can't keep her hands off new squeeze Nick Lachey – even while he's trying to eat his lunch!

The brunette stunner's manual skills were in rare form and full view yesterday afternoon as the couple enjoyed an intimate late lunch at Manhattan's Atlantic Grill. Vanessa couldn't stop pawing, petting, and caressing her new man and she even strokes him under the chin for longer than forever – and Nick proves his manhood by withstanding the treatment.

Nick gives back – a little bit – with a sweet touch of her face. But despite Vanessa's considerable manipulation, she simply cannot get him to kiss her in public. After several attempts, Vanessa goes in for the big one, but – much to the vocal dismay of the paparazzi – she just can't get any satisfaction.
