• Neil Patrick Harris enjoying a late afternoon snack downtown at Graffiato Wednesday. Jeans, sweater, newsboy cap; fiance David Burtka at his side. Brussel sprouts, cauliflower, pizza, a Negroni cocktail. The actor — in town to host the White House Christmas tree lighting Thursday — was on the first stop of a citywide foodie marathon, resurfacing at Toki Underground on H Street NE and wrapping up after midnight at Izakaya Seki near U Street; if his Twitter feed is to be believed, ate heartily at every stop. How do these guys stay so thin? He told Graffiato’s chef Marjorie Meek-Bradley that Frederick, Md., celebrity chef Bryan Voltaggio recommended the restaurants.
