New York Cafe Gets Creative and Dishes Out Political Fun

New York Cafe Gets Creative and Dishes Out Political Fun

VERO, the Upper East Side’s trendy Italian café (1483 Second Avenue), is getting into the thick of the heated presidential race and

New York State Primary.   Beginning today, the restaurant is offering some fun and delicious dishes featuring each of the five candidates favorite meals

Frontrunner Donald Trump loves meat loaf. VERO will accommodate the real estate mogul from New York by serving its own Italian-style version of the American classic topped with caviar in honor of the candidate’s fast paced lifestyle.

Hillary Clinton loves spicy foods.  In honor of her Midwest roots, the restaurant will offer a Chicago-style pizza topped with spicy Italian sausage, spicy bologna as well as a most spicy secret sauce recipe.

The “Bernwich” pays homage to rising political star Bernie Sanders. Born in Brooklyn and a Senator from New England, the “Bernwich” is a delicious sandwich heaped with pastrami and topped with melted Vermont cheddar cheese.


The Menu

What better way to represent candidate Ted Cruz than with the popular Cubano sandwich boasting a delicious variety of meats, cheeses and vegetables pressed and heated together.

Last John Kasick is a meat and potatoes kind of Midwesterner.  For Ohio’s governor, Vero will serve steak frites — a small rib eye steak grilled to perfection with French fries.

The special presidential menu is out to see which dish sells the best and will eagerly see if the results correlate to the numbers in the New York State primary race.

Be sure to check out this fun menu. For more information please visit
