Today In Presidential Food

President Obama is heading to New York for a campaign fundraiser and he's bringing some high-profile supporters (Caroline Kennedy, Jerry Seinfeld, etc.) and some crazy traffic to Gotham Bar and Grill.

On the menu: Roasted beet salad with fennel, mango, goat cheese, and white balsamic vinaigrette; dry-aged prime steak with marrow mustard custard, baby carrots, onion rings, and bordelaise sauce; and a dessert duo with a honeycrisp apple strudel and chocolate pecan pie with cinnamon ice cream.

All this, plus a speech from Obama and a Q&A, for $35,800 per person.
