The notion that Rao’s has a 42-year waiting list for a table was debunked here, but landing a reservation at this fabled East Harlem restaurant is still no mean feat. The question on the mind of the New York Jets front office and fans alike is whether the lure of a dinner at Rao’s will be enough to persuade Aaron Rodgers to come to New York as quarterback for the Jets.
According to Page Six, celebrity private investigator Bo Dietl has offered Rodgers a seat at his table if the 39-year-old future Hall of Famer signs with the team. Dietl has had the same table on Thursday nights since 1977.
If Rodgers accepts the offer, he “will be following in the footsteps of Phil Simms, Joe Montana, Boomer Esiason, and Peyton Manning, who celebrated his second Super Bowl title at Rao’s with brother Eli in February 2016.”
