[advertisement]][image - wine bottle] SALIGNAC
COGNAC [image - wine glass with fish in water] Who says you have to drink cognac from a snifter big enough to hold a gaggle of goldfish?
With six generations of good breeding like ours, you don't have to be that stuffy. Our taste is truly rich. On the rocks. Splashed with soda.
Or straight from a French cognac glass. At noon...Before dinner...Instead of the usual. Salignac Cognac. Our price is decidedly unstuffy, too. 
Salignac. The unstuffy cognac.

NEW YORK POST, WEDNESDAY, SUGUST 9. 1978

LAST NIGHT with EARL WILSON
The President's Supper

FOR HOURS IT WAS a great big White House mystery. Where was Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter going to have supper in New York?
Just two hours ahead, the secret leaked. I got it direct from Peter Aschkenasy, operator of the U.S. Steak House:
"HE'S COMING HERE!"
It'd been a Secret Service secret to protect the Carters, Gov. Carey, Anne Ford, Mayor Koch and Bess Myerson on their night seeing "Ain't Misbehavin'" and going backstage.
***
The President wanted to be very uh, democratic, ordering "right off the menu," sitting right out in the middle of the dining room amid the regular people.
"Mayor Koch is the host, this is one of his favorite restaurants," Aschkenasy explained. Peter's wife Dorothy the Mayor's assistant for special events, was at Gracie Mansion awaiting the overnight guests, the Carters.
***
[[image - photograph of Jimmy Carter]
President Carter, going to the Longacre to see the Fats Waller musical tribute, heard New York's cheers and saw its protection for him. There were police on rooftops of Mamma Leone's and the Robert F. Kennedy Theater. He smile a lot - more than usual. 
A dog curled up in a police truck. "Sniffs out explosives," somebody said.
The Melody Burlesque Theater marquee said, "WELCOME PRESIDENT CARTER," instead of headlining a stripper.
***
The President, who'd waved to the audience at intermission led the standing ovation at the end, then congratulated the performers and musicians backstage.  He and singer Nell Carter joked about having the same name, and a picture was taken.
Then supper! The Carters bypassed cream of peanut soup, right there on the menu, and concentrated on chateaubriand for two.
Gov. Carey and Mayor Koch asked for NY State white wines.  The Carters indicated a preference for red.  They were served a California Cabernet Sauvignon. There wasn't a martini, or three martinis, in sight.
