Vice President Joe Biden, wife Jill, lunching now at Saloon
Vice President Joe Biden and wife Jill are lunching at this moment at Saloon (750 S. 7th) where they have been regulars for years. Huge Secret Service presence both inside and outside the restaurant.
UPDATE: It turns out the couple were in town because Dr. Jill Biden had a consultation earlier today with an orthopaedist at the Rothman Institute over some shoulder pain, says the vice president's press office.
More on lunch: The VP went for his favorite Saloon dish, angel hair pasta with spicy tomato sauce while his sore-shouldered-spouse chose gnocchi with tomato cream sauce. They shared a tomato and mozzarella salad. The VP also charmed a table of older women on his way out when he stopped to talk to them.
