If food is the way to a person’s heart, then it’s no surprise that Hillary Clinton has released a list of her favorite New York restaurants on the eve of the state’s primary.

Among the 12 restaurants listed in a piece the presidential hopeful wrote for Thrillist, Clinton named three New York City eateries that she just can’t get enough of: Red Rooster, Hillstone and Rao’s.

“Where else can you get Swedish meatballs, fried chicken, and ‘Mac & Greens’ under one roof, not to mention plenty of vegetable options?” Clinton said of Red Rooster, which she also mentioned is one of former President Bill Clinton’s favorite restaurants.

When it comes to Hillstone, Clinton said the restaurant’s veggie burgers are a must-try.

“My vegan husband swears by them,” she wrote.

Heading back to Harlem, Clinton suggested anyone who can get a table at Rao’s should “try a little bit of everything.”

Other New York restaurants that made the list include Dinosaur Bar-B-Que in Syracuse, Lange’s Little Store in Chappaqua and DeFazio’s Pizzeria in Troy.

The only item on the list that isn’t a restaurant: New York apples.
