Huma Abedin was once married to a promising politician — but she now hangs with a more dashing chap who played one on TV.

The former top Hillary Clinton aide was seen on Thursday night at celebrity favorite hotspot Sona at a cozy dinner with Tony Goldwyn, who played fictional President Fitzgerald Grant III on the hit show “Scandal.”

The pair were seen sitting side-by-side in a prime banquette at the haute Indian eatery that’s co-owned by Priyanka Chopra and frequented by the likes of Hillary and Bill Clinton, Gov. Kathy Hochul, Vanity Fair’s Radhika Jones, Mike Tyson and Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner.

Spies said Abedin and Goldwyn were in rapt conversation and stayed till the place shut down. They then went their separate ways with Goldwyn exiting with some leftovers to take home.

But the political insider and the longtime married TV star are reportedly just close friends.

In 2017, they were even seen together hanging out at Disneyland with Abedin’s son. But a source told E! News at the time: “They are very close friends and worked very closely together when Tony campaigned for Hillary… Tony is married and loves his wife, [Jane Musky].”

Goldwyn was visibly wearing his wedding ring at dinner. Reps did not get back to us.

Before dinner, the pair also hit the famed Strand’s Rare Book Room, we hear, where they celebrated the release of a new book by Goldwyn’s filmmaker/writer sister.

Also at the packed event for Liz Goldwyn’s third book, “Sex, Health & Consciousness: How to Reclaim Your Pleasure Potential,” was Chloë Sevigny.

Liz, founder of The Sex Ed, talked about the publication with comedian Ramy Youssef — and a source described the conversation as “equal parts insightful and comedic… it ranged from topics like their personal porn habits, the future of technology, and to how they interact with sex in their own creative practices.”
