The lone plaque memorializing Washington's spy history is at the Georgetown restaurant Au Pied de Cochon, stating "Yurchenko's Last Supper in the USA...Nov. 2, 1985." It commemorates KGB spymaster Vitali Yurchenko, who defected, then had second thoughts over dinner with a CIA agent. He slipped out the restaurant's back exit, and reappeared two days later claiming he had been kidnapped, drugged and taken away against his will.
