Michael Cohen — who is still on house arrest — was spotted at fancy French bistro Le Bilboquet on the Upper East Side Wednesday night, after generating a flurry of headlines by eating at the same spot nearly a year ago.
Cohen, 54, pled guilty to campaign finance fraud stemming from hush-money payments to porn actress Stormy Daniels and ex-Playboy model Karen McDougal — as well as tax evasion and lying to Congress — and was sentenced to three years.
He was released from prison in May 2020 due to concerns about coronavirus, and has been serving out the remainder of his sentence — ending in November — under house arrest.
Cohen’s lawyer Jeffrey K. Levine tells us that for Wednesday evening’s dining out, Cohen “got special permission from the BOP [Bureau of Prisons} and RRM [Residential Reentry Management] to eat out. He made a request and it was granted.”
When we called Cohen to ask if the meal was to celebrate a special occasion, he declined to answer.
Last July — Cohen caused eyebrows to raise when The Post exclusively broke that he was dining at the same swanky restaurant.
On Monday, Cohen, who has been disbarred, posted a video of himself on Twitter chasing after a woman in Central Park who had flipped him off.
“Let’s make you famous,” he’s heard saying as he records her giving him the finger.
Levine tells us that Cohen “is permitted to go out from his home a certain number of hours every weekday. He can go out to exercise the same way he would at [federal prison] Otisville.”
He added, “As far as I am concerned, he is 100 percent compliant with the court’s order, and fully compliant with all the requirements from the New York Bureau of Prisons and his home confinement.”
The Federal Bureau of Prisons Office of Public Affairs tells us: “For safety, security, and privacy reasons, we do not discuss the conditions of confinement for any individual or group of inmates.”
Cohen, Donald Trump’s former personal attorney, has been pushing for a reduced sentence.
