The single life sure looks good on Katie Holmes!

Tom Cruise's soon-to-be-ex left Lion Restaurant in New York City looking hot in tight leather pants, white blazer and heels. Looks like Ms. Holmes is ready to get back into the scene.

We're hoping her newfound freedom will lead her to a Dawson's Creek reunion. You may recall, Tom reportedly didn't like the idea ... but now that she's no longer committed, perhaps she'll reconsider.

As for her split with Cruise, Katie will have primary physical custody of 6-year-old daughter Suri with Tom being given "generous visitation rights."

Onwards and upwards!
