Spotted: WaPo’s E.J. Dionne Out to Lunch

WaPo op-ed columnist and political commentator E.J. Dionne was spotted out to lunch this afternoon at Pesce (a restaurant after our own hearts) off Dupont Circle. He was dining with a blonde woman. His meal consisted of ice water and Caesar’s Salad.

As loquacious as ever, Dionne was heard talking about a column he wrote on Kennedy in 1998. The woman listened attentively and didn’t appear bored by the political chatter.

Here he is above at the table.

Update: We’ve corrected the above to reflect that Dionne wrote his column on Kennedy in 1998 not 1968. He wrote into FishbowlDC: “Greetings. E. J. Dionne here.A friend sent me this and I just wanted the record to be clear: I wasn’t old enough to write a column on Robert Kennedy’s death! I was talking about a column I wrote in 1998 on the 30th Anniversary of the death of my dad, who also died in 1968. Glad you have a source at Pesce, a lovely place.” Indeed, E.J., we have our fishy spies at all the best spots around town.
