Iraqi President Jalal Talabani, his son and families have lunch at Le Bec-Fin.

Secret lunch at Le Bec-Fin

That flurry of black limos and guys with earpieces in front of Le Bec-Fin on Walnut Street meant a VIP luncheon on Friday. It was the Iraqi president, Jalal Talabani, his son Qubad, and family members, plus Iraqi security and Secret Service. Chef Georges Perrier personally took the orders: tomato salads and foie gras (tsk, tsk -- Talabani just had heart surgery at the Mayo Clinic); main course was sole meunière. The Talabanis were spotted Wednesday at the Bombay Club in D.C.
