Buffett’s Salty Steak Draws Warning From Wells Fargo CEO

Wells Fargo & Co. Chief Executive Officer John Stumpf, telling the story of his first meal with Warren Buffett in Omaha, Nebraska, said the billionaire investor’s eating habits came as a shock.

Stumpf, responding to a question about Buffett at the National Press Club in Washington today, said the world’s third-richest person dined on a T-bone steak cooked medium rare, a side of chicken parmigiana, mashed potatoes and a Cherry Coke. Buffett, 84, runs Berkshire Hathaway Inc., the largest shareholder in San Francisco-based Wells Fargo.
