Hey isn’t that… New Jersey’s favorite traffic cop, wait no, Gov. Chris Christie (R) and an crew of staffers celebrating his big CPAC speech with lunch at Graffiato in Chinatown on Thursday.

Christie, along with a working entourage of about six people, sat upstairs near the restaurant’s open “ham bar” (yep) and noshed on several pizzas, caesar salad, gnocchi and soup, according to our reliable source. The gov even posed for pictures with the Graffiato’s wine and service director, James Horn, who along with resto’s owner, Top Chef Mike Isabella, is a Jersey boy.

Last year the governor famously didn’t cut the conservative mustard and wasn’t invited to the annual CPAC love fest.
