Andy Cohen’s Son, Ben, Has the Most Adorable Feelings About Sharing Food
The WWHL host documented his son’s explanation for sharing a condiment at lunch, and we can’t stop smiling.
Andy Cohen’s 4-year-old son, Benjamin Allen Cohen, is quite an affectionate kid. Now a big brother, Ben always has cuddles and kisses to share with his baby sister, Lucy. He also uses ketchup as a gesture of love! The Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen host shared Ben’s adorable thoughts on sharing the condiment in a recent Instagram Story, and we’ve been smiling ever since.
In the April 2 social media share, Andy gave us a peek inside his Sunday afternoon lunch date with Ben. The father and son were sitting at a table at New York City’s Corner Bistro, which advertises a “legendary burger” on its website. Both Andy and Ben had one of the famous burgers, as well as a side of french fries. There was also a plate of ketchup in the center of the table.
In his caption, Andy shared a snippet of the conversation he’d apparently been having with Ben. “Daddy, why are we sharing ketchup? Is it because I love you and you love me?” Andy wrote, quoting Ben. He added his own response: “Yes, Ben.”
It’s official then: This adorable photo commemorates one of the sweetest lunch dates of all time.
This isn’t the first time Ben and Andy have hit the West Village restaurant together.
In 2022, the Bravo exec took Ben out for another lunch at Corner Bistro — and a great time was had by all. “Taking Ben out for lunch is a JOY!” Andy wrote in an Instagram post that summed up the experience. The post showed another photo of the father-son duo enjoying their bistro meal, having what Andy referred to as “the best burger in NYC.”
Andy’s loyalty to the restaurant goes back even further than that. In 2016, the WWHL host told Delish that he counts an “amazing burger” as one of his favorite foods. He noted that Corner Bistro and JG Melon on the Upper East Side are his go-to spots in New York City.
In case you’re curious, the classic burger at Corner Bistro is a half-pound patty garnished with lettuce, tomato, onion, and pickles. The West Village spot, which is billed as a “Bohemian bar,” also serves a cheeseburger, a “Bistro Burger” with bacon, and a vegetarian “Bistro Bello” burger with a grilled portobello mushroom.
Andy doesn’t subsist on burgers alone, of course. On a 2021 episode of WWHL, he said, “I thought I would offer up the top five foods that I love that might be considered gross to some.”
To start, he called out a childhood classic. “I love a particular brand of canned spaghetti rings that’s trademarked so I won’t specify,” he said. He also confessed to loving “the artificial cheese dust on chips,” any kind of casserole, and uncooked batter.
The father of two also gave a shout-out to a regional delicacy from St. Louis: Provel cheese. “Is it gross? Yes, but it combines cheddar, Swiss, and provolone all into one!” Andy said.
