— Speaker of the House Rep. John Boehner was having dinner in Naples on Monday night.

A reader called the Daily News to report that Boehner, a Republican who represents the 8th district of Ohio, was dining with a group at Andre's Steakhouse, 2800 U.S. 41 N.

A reporter who went to the restaurant was denied an interview with Boehner through a message relayed by security detail.

Attempts to reach Boehner's staff were unsuccessful. The House of Representatives' schedule online lists this week as a constituent work week.
