I was asked to pick up the check when a group of employees took a potential new employee out to dinner as part of his interview. I am now trying to complete my expense reimbursement form and the only instruction on it is that I comply with IRS regulations.

I'm assuming that the cost of the food is deductible per IRS regulations, but I'm not sure where I should be looking to verify that, so I was hoping someone here to either tell me which publication to check.

Also, a couple of people ordered alcoholic beverages with their dinner, is that deductible or should I subtract that before I submit the amount for my employer to reimburse me?
