When Sarah Palin breezed into town in May to dine with fellow spotlight-hound Donald Trump, the two broke crust at Famous Famiglia, an Albanian-owned chain at the bottom rung of New York’s pizza hierarchy. So when it was Rick Perry’s turn to pick The Donald’s brain over dinner last night, where do you think they ate? A White Castle? A Middle Eastern food cart?
Perry huddled with Trump, who aborted his own bid for the GOP nomination earlier this year, at the real estate mogul’s eponymous Trump Tower for more than an hour before his host whisked him off to dine at Jean-Georges Restaurant, a highly-rated — and highly priced — eatery located in another Trump building overlooking Central Park.
Yikes. Uh, don’t worry about that Sarah Palin. Trump probably just, um … forgot … about … Jean Georges … when you came.
