Hey isn’t that… Foo Fighter front man Dave Grohl dining at Logan Circle’s Le Diplomate on Wednesday night? What better place to contemplate squashing the beef bourguignon with grunge’s Cruella de Vil (That would be Courtney Love for those of you who missed the ’90s) than the District’s favorite fancy French spot?

Our tipster tells us that Grohl and a guest arrived about 9 p.m. and sat at a quiet table for two. Fellow diners let the Virginia native enjoy his meal in peace, though a spy says the kitchen sent out a gratis cheese plate. No excessive Instagramming, we hear. And that was probably a good thing, seeing as how 4,000 miles away, Love was chatting about Grohl at the Cannes Lions festival in France.

“It’s time to make amends,” said Love when she was showed a picture of Grohl. The two have been frenemies for decades, all stemming from drama over Nirvana’s publishing (Love was married to Grohl’s former band mate, Nirvana lead singer Kurt Cobain). They did, however, share a hug in April at Nirvana’s induction to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
