Senate schmenet. Let’s eat!
Gov. David Paterson may or may not know who he’s naming to fill Hillary Clinton’s U.S. Senate seat, but he apparently does know good food.
The gov decided to catch a meal at Restaurant X in Congers last night, arriving about 6 or 6:30 p.m. and staying most of the evening, according to Colleen Scollin, the well-regarded eatery’s main hostess.
Scollin described Paterson as a nice guy who shook hands with patrons and posed for pictures after he finished his meal. Of course, finishing up took a while because Restaurant X, owned by chef Peter Kelly, kept bringing out different dishes for him and his guest to sample. He was there with a lady, but Scollin wasn’t sure of her identity, and “lots of body guards,” she said.
“It was so exciting,” Scollin said. “He was the nicest man.”
