Oprah at District Commons; José Andrés Ribs Matt Lauer

FOGGY BOTTOM—Cue all the "favorite things" jokes because none other than Oprah herself was caught having lunch at District Commons today. A rep for the restaurant sends word that the visit was unexpected and that Oprah brought Gayle King and assorted O Magazine staffers with her. [EaterWire]

VIDEO INTERLUDE—This morning, José Andrés stopped by the Today set to make popsicles with Matt Lauer. Andrés gives Lauer an alcoholic one with a warning: "You have more show to do." He also gave Lauer a hard time when he couldn't properly guess the identity of the key lime paletas. Eater National has the video. [-EN-]

LOGAN CIRCLE—In more celebrity spotting news, a tipster forwards a text message from a ChurchKey employee about a visit from a certain Nirvana co-founder: "To all of you: the service industry may not be glorious, but once in a while you get to serve Krist Novoselic. One of the best service nights ever." [EaterWire]

PETWORTH—Prince of Petworth has the brand new Saturday brunch menu for DC Reynolds. Among the entree options, some sweet potato waffles, a breakfast burger, challah french toast and more. [PoP]
