Look Who’s Eating! Political Pundit Edition

David Brooks

ES’ edible paparazzi strike again…

Washington, DC: Maids and her colleague walk by BLT Steak.  Maids makes eye contact with David Brooks(!) who is just sitting there eating at BLT like it’s the most normal damned thing in the world for a famous political pundit to be sitting on the patio of a lunchtime hangout chowing down on fries and such.

Maids’ Colleague (new DC resident): Oh My God!
Maids: I know!
Maids’ Colleague: Those popovers look unbelievable.
Maids: Oh. I thought you were oh-my-godding David Brooks.

Wherever you are in the world, if you spy a famous eater, be a creep and send us your pics!

ES Local: What’s Eating DC

Our weekly local roundup of the best eating and drinking events going down in Washington, DC…

Event of the Week: In true ES fashion my event pick of the week is all about pork. BLT Steak is hosting its inaugural cooking class, teaching techniques on how to prepare and cook pork, including a spit-roast. If it wasn’t my 30th this Saturday (Happy Birthday to Me) and I wasn’t getting sloshed at vineyards in Charlottesville, I’d be trotting on down there myself.
