On Wednesday evening Hicks, the White House communication director, and Sanders, the White House press secretary, were spotted at Woodward Table just a few blocks from 1600 Penn. The powerful pair were joined by two unidentified male guests, says our spy. Everyone was dressed in Washington Work Wear — dark suits and sheaths — so we assume it was a business dinner. The group stayed for nearly three hours, we’re told.
The party of four headed to a semiprivate room near the back of the restaurant so Hicks, who generally keeps a low profile, and Sanders, who’s been spoofed on “Saturday Night Live,” weren’t recognized by the other diners as the White House crew noshed on burgers, fried chicken and mac and cheese.
