Mike Bloomberg is not like most New Yorkers — he’s perfectly content to wait in a line.

Last week the former mayor of New York was spotted outside Neary’s restaurant on the Upper East Side patiently waiting for a table.

A spy told Page Six that there was a crowd of hungry patrons outside the door trying to get a table when a staff member recognized the business titan and gal pal Diana Taylor and offered them a free pass to cut the line.

“Like a gentleman he politely refused and asked that the restaurant accommodate the people ahead of him first,” the spy said before adding, “Pure class.”

The Irish pub, which opened on St. Patrick’s Day in 1967, had been closed due to the coronavirus pandemic and was hosting a welcome-back dinner.

While governing the city, Bloomberg could often be found in his favorite diner, Viand Café, for his regular order of soft-boiled eggs and toast.

Bloomberg, 79, was the mayor from 2002 to 2013 and mounted an unsuccessful campaign to win the 2020 Democratic nomination for president.

Neary’s restaurant declined to comment and Bloomberg did not reply for comment.
