• Forest Whitaker lunching at downtown’s Elisir on Monday afternoon with a couple of family members. The Oscar-winning actor was in town for celebrity duties at the White House Easter Egg Roll — and who knows, maybe a bit of research into his forthcoming role as White House butler Eugene Allen .
• A cluster of TV foodies — “Bizarre Foods” host Andrew Zimmern and “Top Chef” victors Richard Blais and Paul Qui — dining at Graffiato on Sunday night. All were at separate tables with unrelated groups (Blais and his wife celebrating their anniversary), but what gives — does Graffiato offer discounts for these folks? (Giada de Laurentiis has made multiple
visits.) No, but it probably helps that chef/owner Mike Isabella is part of that Top Chef fraternity.
• Julianna Margulies and her husband dining at Cashion’s in Adams Morgan Saturday night.
