Saturday night, the Intrigue restaurant, the place to see the stars, closed down for good because of a change in ownership of the Intrigue Hotel, where the restaurant is located. The owner of the Foggy Bottom restaurant, Peter Laricos, was well known among the entertainers playing the Kennedy Center -- he kept his kitchen open for them until about 1 a.m. And since Washington is still a city where most restaurant kitchens close early, the Intrigue was the place to go to wind down and get something to eat after the performance. Laricos called one semicircular booth at the back of the restaurant Elizabeth Taylor's booth, because that's the one he reserved for her when she played the Kennedy Center. Other regulars during the 10 years the restaurant was there included Jose' Ferrer, James Mason, Dustin Hoffman, Harry Guardino and Angela Lansbury. Laricos said he is looking for a new location he plans to open as Mr. Intrigue. . .
Vice President George Bush and his wife Barbara decided to go out for pasta last weekend and went to the increasingly popular Filomena's in Georgetown. Bush ate in Filomena's kitchen, an area in the rear of the restaurant owner Joanna Filomena uses for friends and special guests. The Bushes greeted some people they knew who were dining there, posed for pictures with waiters and the pasta lady, and then left carrying take-home bags of homemade pasta. . .
