Cameras captured Sanchez with Hayden Panettiere last week, as Rumor Fix reports they entered a hamburger restaurant together and left smiling.

Hayden Panettiere split with boxer Wladimir Klitschko earlier this month, while Sanchez has enjoyed his run as a bachelor in NYC. He's been linked with Jamie-Lynn Sigler and Lindsay McCormick, among others.
