Heard on the Hill: A Trans-Atlantic Dinner Date

Posted March 4, 2011 at 4:43pm

There’s nothing like catching up with an old friend to spice up an otherwise-dull weeknight. Sen. John Kerry did just that Wednesday night when he took a break from legislating to have dinner with Tony Blair.

The Massachusetts Democrat and the former British prime minister were at downtown restaurant Adour at the St. Regis Hotel. We hear the pair dined with a mystery third friend.

In addition to eating French fare, we’re told Kerry and Blair relaxed with a few glasses of wine. It’s unclear what the men chatted about; calls to Kerry’s office were not immediately returned.
