a story in today's New York Times magazine, the reporter, Zev Chafets, offers to take Mike Huckabee to lunch at any restaurant in New York. Huckabee first requests T.G.I. Friday's. Chafats vetoes that, so they end up at Huckabee's second choice, the Olive Garden in Times Square. Huckabee clearly needs a culinary adviser. He's a fisherman and he watches his weight, so he probably would have enjoyed Esca.
