Political disagreements were not on the menu at Il Postino on the Upper East Side, where Andrew Cuomo and Kellyanne Conway dined together Monday night.
The disgraced former governor sat with the former political adviser to one of his biggest rivals – former President Donald Trump.
Cuomo, a Democrat, and Conway, a Republican, were photographed exiting the Italian restaurant on 61st Street after 10 p.m
The former governor did not comment on the relevance of the dinner as he climbed into his car.
He waved to Conway as they parted.
Two years ago, the unlikely couple was at the center of political power.
One fell out of favor while the former Conway’s former boss fends off multiple investigations and legal entanglements while trying to run for office again.
Andrew Cuomo became a national presence when he took over TV screens for his daily press briefings on the crisis in the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic.
He also appeared on primetime cable news with his brother, disgraced former CNN host Chris Cuomo.
Andrew Cuomo resigned a year later after mounting allegations of sexual misconduct plagued him.
Conway helped lead Trump to the presidency when she was his campaign manager in 2016 and was an influential figure in the White House during his tenure.
But Trump lost his re-election in 2020 and refused to accept the results. Conway, who resigned from her official role in the White House months before the 2020 election, recently sat for testimony before the Jan. 6 House Committee investigating events surrounding the US Capitol riots.
Conway said she is not working on Trump’s 2024 campaign.
This House of Representatives committee on Monday recommended criminal charges for Trump over the Capitol riots.
While they were on opposite sides of the political aisle, a source told The Post: “Both are in a relevance war.”
“She’s on the decline because of her role with the former president and he’s had his issues,” the source said.
The source also slammed Cuomo for dining with a former Trump aide, whom Cuomo criticized countless times while the two men were both in office. Trump called Cuomo a “total loser” when the governor announced his resignation.
“He would disparage the people who worked with President Trump,” the source said of Cuomo. “and now he eats among them.”
“What’s next Mar-a-Lago?” The source added in reference to the Florida resort where Trump resides.
