De Blasio, Cuomo Set Aside Feud for Dinner Date in Manhattan

Mayor de Blasio and Gov. Cuomo are setting aside their feud — for one dinner, anyway. 

The two Democrats, who've fought over dozens of issues in the last year, quietly met Tuesday night in Manhattan.

The New York Post first reported Thursday that the two men dined at Casa Lever on Park Avenue. Officials later confirmed the dinner but would not say what was discussed.

The men each ordered the $46-a-plate branzino. Neither had drinks with the fish dish.

The politicians, who were each joined by an aide, ate in a private section at the back of the restaurant. No other diners were seated nearby.

Cuomo and de Blasio have frequently clashed, most recently last week about the city's approach to its homelessness crisis.
