Bill and Hillary Clinton Enjoy Easter Buffet with Family in NYC Hotel
Bill and Hillary Clinton joined other diners for a festive Easter Sunday buffet at the Peninsula hotel in New York City, according to Page Six. The former first family, including daughter Chelsea, her husband Marc Mezvinsky, and their children, partook in the buffet line alongside other guests, sources said.
Before the Clintons' arrival, the Secret Service conducted a security sweep of the premises. Once the family settled in, they wasted no time in heading to the buffet.
A source described the scene, saying, "It was really fun to see. They all went up there like the rest of us, and there was, like, a carving station with prime rib, a whole fish… and then a dessert station."
Bill Clinton, always the charismatic figure, mingled and posed for photos with guests at the hotel's Clement restaurant. In contrast, Hillary Clinton moved past the crowd more quickly. However, the former Secretary of State did indulge in a bit of nostalgia, posting a throwback photo on social media of her and Bill celebrating Easter at the White House in 1994. She captioned the image, "Wishing a happy Easter to everyone celebrating."
Sources noted that the Clinton grandchildren looked adorable as they picked out desserts, adding that "everybody looked great."
During the event, Clinton's Secret Service detail informed him that Archbishop of New York Timothy Cardinal Dolan was in a private room nearby with church officials.
Overheard by sources, Bill asked his security, "Does Cardinal Dolan know that I'm here?" The former president then proceeded to engage in conversation with the Archbishop for about 10 minutes before returning to his family.
The Clintons' Easter celebration at the Peninsula hotel demonstrated their down-to-earth nature, as they enjoyed a meal in a public space like any other family. This event served as a reminder that, despite their high-profile political careers, the Clintons remain a close-knit family that cherishes time spent together during special occasions.
