2007_03_oliverdinner.jpgYesterday afternoon, demonstrators protested the Queens grand jury indictments of three police officers in the November 2006 shooting of Sean Bell. Marchers, who walked from Union Square to 1 Police Plaza, were upset that only three of the five officers who shot at Bell and his two friends, all of them unarmed, were indicted.

And there's a little dissonance between the coverage in the Daily News and Post about Detective Michael Oliver, who fired 31 of the 50 shots at Bell. The Daily News notes that he was keeping a low profile yesterday, shoveling snow outside his parents home in NJ, but the Post puts him on the cover, reporting that he had a $4,200 dinner at Nello:

Oliver had an hourlong dinner at 7 p.m. yesterday with four young hotties and the man who picked up the check, José Garcia, Oliver's friend from Spain.

The unmarried Oliver was particularly flirty with one foxy brunette, said sources inside the restaurant.

He was overheard talking about the case, although he didn't appear agitated until he spotted waiting photographers and started talking testily into his cellphone.

"I have nothing to say. I'll see what happens," he said after exiting the eatery at 62nd Street and Madison Avenue. "I have no comment. Talk to my lawyer."

One of the women said the group was holding a birthday celebration, but didn't say for whom.

They dined on four orders of dover sole, and two plates of pasta with truffles. The latter goes for a whopping $180 a pop.

They washed down the fine food with five $575 bottles of Brunello di Montalcino wine, then closed the meal with a dessert of tiramisu, apple pie and sips of Frangelico.

WABC 7 has video of Oliver leaving the restaurant.

The Daily News does have a story about how Queens DA Richard Brown has a "pro-police rep."
