Aaron Rodgers gets an offer he can’t refuse – dinner at Rao’s

Prospective jet Aaron Rodgers hasn’t even hit a New York tarmac yet, and he’s already landed an unobtainable reservation at orecchiette’s oracle, Rao’s.

The big grill is currently on hold as Gang Green and the Green Bay Packers work out a trade that will bring the 39-year-old NFL superstar to the Big Apple.

But New Yorkers are already rolling out the welcome mat.

“As long as you’re not a vegetarian, you come to New York and we’ll bust your cherry,” famous private detective Bo Dietl said.

He told the Post he would make the quarterback an offer he couldn’t refuse — dinner at the famous exclusive restaurant in East Harlem, where Dietl had had the No. 1 table on Thursday nights since 1977.

If he accepts, Rodgers will follow in the footsteps of Phil Simms, Joe Montana, Boomer Esiason and Peyton Manning, who celebrated his second Super Bowl title at Rao’s with his brother Eli in February 2016.

When Rodgers isn’t drizzled with baked clams and bolognese sauce, he loves a good steak, according to a downtown Manhattan reconnaissance report.

In January 2014, the Green Bay caller dined at Benjamin Steakhouse on East 41st Street with friends after appearing on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,” Page Six reported.

“He came here four or five times. Would love to see him more,” owner Benjamin Prelvukaj told The Post, adding, “He loves the ribeye” — and gives great advice.

In June 2014, Rodgers was spotted with then-girlfriend Olivia Munn at The Skylark cocktail bar in the Garment District after attending the Cinema Society party for the horror film ‘Deliver Us From Evil”.

No cheesehead, Rodgers cleaned up nicely as he left the Carlyle Hotel with Munn for the 2015 Met Gala, the theme of which was, “China: Through the Looking Glass.”

In August 2017, Rodgers, who had by then moved on from Munn, was spotted on a date with 24-year-old soccer player Marie Margolius at the Upper East Side celebrity haunt, The East Pole.

“They arrived around 10 p.m. and appeared to have a date. He wore a baseball cap and asked for the quietest, farthest table possible,” Page Six reported.

“His hat was tilted down. It definitely seemed like he wanted to be incognito,” an insider said.

The athletic duo sat close together in a quiet cabin and feasted on cheeseburgers and monkfish, malbec and pinot noir.

East Pole co-owner Tom Martignetti, 43, said he would like to see Rodgers in Jets green.

“He’s a cool guy,” he said.

“He’s the kind of guy you want to have a drink with. Compared to Wisconsin, he’s going to have fun in New York.
