Usually it's political power players who are the ones dining in Washington; recently, Washington and Hollywood collided as White House Healthcare adviser Ezekiel Emanuel (brother of Rahm) dined in D.C. with "Curb Your Enthusiasm" star Larry David.

Ezekiel, now a blogger for the newly-launched Atlantic Food Channel, wrote a review for that site about his dinner with David at the Blue Duck Tavern recently.

The blog showcased all of David's famous neuroses (he won't eat anything with meat or cream due to high cholesterol) and Ezekiel's famous family (references to brother Ari, the Hollywood superagent who represents David).

"When advised -- by his agent and friend [Ari] -- that he should just take a statin and eat to his heart's delight, Larry dismissed the idea," Emanuel wrote.

"I attract every side effect of these drugs," David was quoted as saying.
