Sen. Bernie Sanders, fresh off a win in New Hampshire – and a very near win in Iowa – has taken to a restaurant in New York City for a sit-down with activist Al Sharpton, a Wednesday morning meeting aimed at broadening the self-declared socialist's standing among black voters.

As the Hill reported: Sanders is trying to make inroads with minorities, particularly "where Clinton has consistently polled stronger," meaning black voters.
The pair met at the famous soul food spot, Sylvia's, in Harlem. Former NAACP Ben Jealous, who's previously endorsed Sanders for president, was also at the meeting.
The get-together hails back to 2008, when Sharpton met at the same spot with then-Sen. Barack Obama to discuss his presidential aspirations.
