Obama Restaurant Watch -- First Lady In New York Edition

Michelle Obama had lunch at Gramercy Tavern in NYC today.

We spoke with chef Michael Anthony after Obama left the restaurant, and he reported that she ate "a light seasonal meal," and emphasized a preference for items sourced from nearby. She also told him that her campaign to encourage healthy eating and local food had "just begun."

I'd probably have made a meal of the chilled corn soup and crispy oysters and a glass of the 2005 Pouilly-Fuissé, Ferret, Les Vernays.
