New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman was in Bangor Tuesday night where he stopped at a downtown restaurant for dinner.

Lisa Leonard, the owner of Evenrood's at 25 Broad Street, said Edelman came in with a party that dined in the vault, a private room at the restaurant.

Leonard said she didn't ask why Edelman was in the city. She did say Edelman was "very nice" and agreed to take a photo with the staff. For those of you who were wondering, Edelman had the halibut and enjoyed it very much.

The visit came as a complete surprise to Leonard and her staff.

"It was very exciting for us," Leonard Wednesday, after posting a photo to the restaurant's Facebook.

Edelman was in the city to speak to a gathering of Bangor Savings Bank employees.
