In the name of Allah

There's no restriction in eating with a non-Muslim, not from Ahl Alketab (Jews and Christians) nor any other religion. Allah does not forbid us from dealing justly with non-Muslims who do not fight us for religious reasons or depart us from our homes.

The only thing about food and non-Muslims is the food itself, you have to make sure you eat halal food, and this is another question.
