NBC Video: Sarkozy and Bruni Hit Ben's

It was just another day at world leader-feeder Ben's Chili Bowl when French President Nicolas Sarkozy and wife Carla Bruni showed up for some grub.

The Reliable Source says the French president and model-turned-first lady had a chili burger and a half-smoke, and President Obama later told reporters that "the fact that Nicolas went to Ben's Chili Bowl for lunch shows his discriminating palate," according to The Washington Post. The New York Times, however, makes fun of them for not going at 4 a.m. Don't they know Ben's is good eats whenever a half-smoke hankering hits?

Speaking of discerning palate and sampling the local cuisine, I wonder if they dropped by Adams Morgan for a jumbo slice after dinner at the White House ;-)

Le jumbo slice, peut-etre!

I just love that they went to Ben's.
