Where do you take your pregnant wife for your first wedding anniversary after the very public exposure of your extramarital online dalliances forced you to resign your congressional seat? Miami Beach, apparently. And where do you dine so news of your apparently loving dinner gets leaked to the gossip press? Ocean Drive's Prime One Twelve, of course.
The New York Post's Page Six reports that former congressman Anthony Weiner and wife Huma Abedin were spotted dinning at the restaurant this weekend:
Anthony Weiner escaped to Miami for a romantic weekend with wife Huma to celebrate their wedding anniversary. Witnesses told us that the couple, who married a year ago on Long Island, looked very much in love as they dined with friends at Miami's celebrity hot spot Prime 112 steakhouse on Saturday night. The couple sat in the private wine room with the curtains partially closed.
Anthony and Huma, apparently untroubled by his recent scandal, were seen being very affectionate at the table and laughing as they dined with another couple. Huma had a noticeable baby bump while wearing loose-fitting clothes. They went mostly unnoticed but when leaving they stood in front of the restaurant. While their friends waited for their car, people started to notice and approach Weiner. Their friends chose to drive, but Weiner and Huma opted for a late-night stroll down Ocean Drive.
Well, good for them. We feel kind of icky for still mentioning Weiner's personal life post-scandal, but we can't imagine the outing wasn't meant to be leaked to the press in a positive light. Someone at Prime One Twelve must have Page Six on speed dial. The restaurant has been mentioned in the gossipy paper at least 36 times in the past few years.
