Hey, isn’t that . . . former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, dining with a group of women friends on Monday night at Georgetown VIP favorite Cafe Milano?

The one-time front-runner seems to be emerging from a post-defeat retreat (she spent time hiking in the woods near her home in Chappaqua, N.Y., and more recently attended a Broadway performance of “The Color Purple” with her family). Her dinner party in a private room at the Italian restaurant included pals former Rep. Ellen Tauscher and Capricia Marshall, an aide during Clinton’s tenure as first lady and later protocol chief during her husband’s administration.

A fellow diner couldn’t make out others in the group. Security detail was blocking the view.

Clinton’s post-election forays into public come ahead of Donald Trump’s inauguration next week, which she is attending — according to tradition — as a former first lady.
