According to Page Six today:

Clinton is already in the swing of the New York restaurant world. Last week, he picked up the phone personally and called Rao's owner Frank Pellegrino to get Hillary a table at the clubby East Harlem eatery. According to spies, an unimpressed Pellegrino casually said, "I'll see what I can do."

"Frankie got them a booth, which in Rao's is like going to heaven," our insider reported. Hillary dined with Harlem Rep. Charlie Rangel. Clinton called Pellegrino back the next night to thank him.
