Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and former President Barack Obama left their ties at home Tuesday night as they casually dined at a Montreal restaurant.

Obama had earlier addressed a crowd of 6,000 people at the Montreal Board of Trade during his first post-presidency visit to Canada. He did not mention President Donald Trump by name but denounced the current administration’s lack of leadership on climate change and diplomacy. 

Following the event, Obama and Trudeau headed to the St. Henri neighborhood for dinner. According to the Montreal Gazette, people crowded outside Liverpool House to get a look at the two leaders. Liverpool House is the popular sister restaurant to the trendy eatery Joe Beef.

People on Twitter loved it. Some hoped for a cameo appearance by France’s new president, Emmanuel Macron, while others complimented the pair on their restaurant choice.

And, of course, some wondered if the dinner jeopardized a certain bromance.

CORRECTION: This article previously misstated the name of Liverpool House’s sister restaurant: It is Joe Beef, not “Joe’s Beef.”
