The buzz was audible Sunday night at tony Georgetown restaurant Cafe Milano, where all eyes were on the corner table.
Holding court in the center was legendary basketball star Michael Jordan, who took off his hat as he sat down to dinner with three friends.
Jordan was in a white dress shirt and jeans, and his friends were dressed equally casually.
The “boys’ night” must have been going well, because at 11 p.m. the group was one of the last three tables in the house.
Also spotted was Democratic power-player Vernon Jordan (no relation), a Cafe Milano regular, and Vanity Fair scribe Christopher Hitchens.
