V.P. Joe Biden Ate Dinner in Belltown

Spoiler alert: He ordered puttanesca.

Vice President Joe Biden ate dinner at Assaggio on Wednesday night. A kooky King 5 report includes footage of the event: A reporter followed Biden's entourage to the Belltown restaurant and ordered a pizza at the bar while Biden ate puttanesca at a table.

On the sidewalk outside the restaurant post meal the reporter asks, "how was dinner?" Biden says, "it was delicious." In town for an official visit and political fundraiser, Biden is staying at the nearby Westin. After dinner, the veep skipped the motorcade and walked back to the hotel.

In related V.P. food news, Biden ate Woodblock Chocolate and Double-Fold Vanilla ice cream like he meant it Wednesday at Salt & Straw in Portland.
