Manhattan, NY - The mayor ordered the fettuccine ($25). The governor had the yellowfin tuna steak ($35). Ever-vigilant about waistlines, they skipped dessert. And despite the chasm that separates their net worth, they split the bill.

It was kept off their public schedules, but around 7 p.m. on Monday night, Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg and Governor Andrew M. Cuomo sat down for an intimate, staff-free dinner at Gabriel’s restaurant, a few steps from Columbus Circle, witnesses said.

For nearly three hours, an eternity for a political dinner, they talked without interruption — not even noticing Sting and his manager a few tables away.

It was their first one-on-one dinner since Mr. Cuomo’s election, and it provided them with ample time to hash over legislation, trade political gossip and negotiate a few deals.
