Michael McCarty to Close Restaurant: The Santa Monica restaurateur will close Adirondacks, his Washington, D.C., restaurant, on June 30. McCarty, who owns Michael's in Santa Monica and another in New York, had been attempting to renegotiate the Washington restaurant's 25-year lease. "We were paying three times the fair price," said Ricardo Solares, the restaurant's manager. "Instead of paying $360,000 a year, we tried to renegotiate to $120,000."

"THE ETHICAL LUNCH": That's what Tiberio's, a tony Washington eatery, calls a special four-course lunch it's offering for $19.99, including wine, tax and tips. That just happens to squeeze under the $20 limit imposed by the Clinton Administration on meals that government officials can accept from lobbyists and journalists. Normally, such a meal there costs close to $40.

It's the Great American Success Story. And it's strictly kosher. It's the Moshe Dragon glatt kosher Chinese restaurant in a Rockville, Md., shopping center. Located next to Katz's Kosher Supermarket, the 2-month-old restaurant is at the center of kosher culture in suburban Montgomery County. Its proprietor is Lenny Ung, 28. No, he's not Jewish. He's Buddhist by background, a Vietnamese immigrant who traces his ancestry to China. With his family, Ung fled the Vietnam War to Cambodia.

It's lunchtime in the nation's capital, and places like Jean-Pierre--the posh, oh-so-proper restaurant that has long been a favorite of expense-account diners like lawyers and lobbyists--ordinarily are chock-full. Reservations are a must. But these days, there are plenty of available tables at Jean-Pierre--and at dozens of other top Washington dining-spots--and Jean-Michel Farret, the restaurant's Gallic, debonair maitre d'hotel, has time to sit and lament his plight.
