Potential future Jet Aaron Rodgers gets offer he can’t refuse — dinner at Rao’s

Potential Jet Aaron Rodgers hasn’t even hit an NYC tarmac yet, and he’s already landed an impossible-to-get reservation at the oracle of orecchiette, Rao’s.

The gridiron great is currently on standby while Gang Green and the Green Bay Packers work out a trade that will bring the 39-year-old NFL superstar to the Big Apple.

But New Yorkers are already rolling out the welcome mat.

“As long as you ain’t a vegetarian, you come to New York and we are going to break your cherry,” said celebrity Private Investigator Bo Dietl.

He told The Post he’ll make the quarterback an offer he can’t refuse — dinner at the famously exclusive East Harlem eatery, where Dietl’s had Table No. 1 on Thursday nights since 1977.

If he accepts, Rodgers will be following in the footsteps of Phil Simms, Joe Montana, Boomer Esiason, and Peyton Manning, who celebrated his second Super Bowl title at Rao’s with brother Eli in February 2016.

When Rodgers isn’t being showered with baked clams and bolognese sauce, he likes a good steak, according to a midtown Manhattan scouting report.

In January 2014, the Green Bay signal caller supped at Benjamin Steakhouse on East 41st Street with friends after appearing on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,” Page Six reported.

“He’s been here four or five times. I’d love to see him more,” owner Benjamin Prelvukaj told The Post, adding, “He loves the ribeye” — and tips well.

In June 2014, Rodgers was spotted with then-girlfriend Olivia Munn at The Skylark cocktail bar in the Garment District after attending the Cinema Society party for the horror flick “Deliver Us From Evil.”

No cheesehead, Rodgers cleaned up nicely leaving the Carlyle Hotel with Munn for the 2015 Met Gala, whose theme was: “China: Through the Looking Glass.”

In August 2017, Rodgers, who had by then moved on from Munn, was spotted on a date with 24-year-old soccer player Marie Margolius at the Upper East Side celebrity haunt The East Pole.

“They arrived at around 10 p.m. and seemed to be on a date. He wore a baseball cap and asked for the quietest, most out-of-the-way table possible,” Page Six reported.

“His hat was tilted down. It definitely seemed like he wanted to be incognito,” an insider said.

The athletic duo sat close to each other in a quiet booth and feasted on cheeseburgers and monkfish, quaffing malbec and pinot noir.

East Pole co-owner Tom Martignetti, 43, said he would love to see Rodgers in Jets green.

“He’s a cool dude,” he said.

“He’s the kind of guy you’d want to have a drink with. Compared to Wisconsin, he’s going to have a ball in New York City.”

Dietl agreed: “You can’t get f–king Rao’s meatballs in Green Bay.”
