Hero Captain Sully: D.C. Dining!

Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger, the hero pilot who safely landed US Airways Flight 1549, was invited along with his family to Obama's inaguration -- and took in some good eats while in the capital!


Sully and his family dined at the ironically named Hudson Restaurant & Lounge in D.C. The restaurant's owner Alan G. Popovsky, pictured with Sully and Hudson's Chef Ryan T. Arnold told "Extra" the captain and his clan "were a very polite, appreciative group...very nice people."

The pilot noshed on fried chicken, burgers, and pizza -- along with a complimentary dessert from the restaurant, as a "small token of appreciation for his amazing act."
