Order the Veal, Sheldon

Jewish Republicans closed Monday night at a fancy Cuban-style restaurant in Tampa’s Ybor City district. Sheldon and Miriam Adelson entered the Columbia restaurant accompanied by RJC director Matt Brooks and what appeared to be a bodyguard.

Adelson, sporting a short sleeved shirt in an otherwise jacket and tie crowd, seemed at home with the many Republican delegates and operatives filling the restaurant, where a strip steak costs $33 and ‘La Reina Isabella’ veal chop goes for $29.95.

Noticing the interest from journalists in the restaurant, the Adelson party quickly moved to another part of the restaurant, where they were later joined by another Jewish Republican, Rabbi Shmuley Boteach who is running for Congress in New Jersey’s 9th congressional district and has recently received Adelson’s endorsement.

Also speaking to the Adelson’s was CBS Radio reporter Dan Raviv, author of books on Israel’s Mossad spy agency.
