Trump dines with Romney in Manhattan; here’s what they ate; Romney talks about meeting


President-elect Donald Trump and Mitt Romney met in a restaurant in New York City on Tuesday evening, presumably to talk about the possibility that Romney will be the next secretary of State.

And while political pundits are speculating on the conversation about the direction the country will go under Trump’s administration, the rest of us are, if social media is any indication, wondering what they ordered.

The man Trump chose for his chief of staff, Reince Priebus, joined Trump and Romney for dinner at Manhattan's Jean Georges Restaurant.

Here, via the transition team and according to pool reporters covering the president-elect, is what they ordered:

For appetizers, the men ordered a young garlic soup with thyme and sautéed frog legs, and diver scallops with caramelized cauliflower and caper-raisin emulsion.

Priebus and Trump ordered a prime sirloin with citrus glazed carrots for their main course. Romney chose lamb chops with a mushroom bolognese sauce. All three of the men had a chocolate cake for dessert.

Here’s Romney after the meeting. No mention of dessert.
