Die eerste gesin het tuna tostadas, blou garnale, mol en Olvera se beroemde eend carnitas geniet

Die POTUS is met 'n motorwa met 13 motors na die restaurant begelei.

Nie 'n geleentheid om die kookkuns in New York te misloop nie, President Obama en presidentsvrou Michelle Obama het by Enrique Olvera geëet Cosme Maandagaand in die Flatiron -distrik. Algemene Vergadering.

Die Obamas het met 'n motorwa met 13 motors opgedaag, Grubstraat gedetailleerd, en 'n Instagram -plasing van Ricardo Verdejo het die kwitansie vir hul aandete getoon. Hulle het "tuna tostadas met yuzu en avokado, burrata, kreef met gemmermojo, kort ribbetjies en natuurlik die eend carnitas" geëet, waarvoor Olvera bekend is.

Kyk hoe Cosme op ons lys van die 101 beste restaurante in Amerika vir 2016.


Eet soos die Obamas: die beste restaurante waarby hulle die afgelope 8 jaar geëet het

Daar is absoluut geen twyfel nie: die Obamas het 'n uitstekende smaak in restaurante. Tydens hul agt jaar in die Withuis, het president Barack Obama en presidentsvrou Michelle Obama 'n punt probeer om 'n paar van die coolste en nuwerwetsste plekke ter wêreld te probeer, van die Sukiyabashi Jiro van Tokio (van Jiro Dreams of Sushi roem) na die waansinnig gewilde Rose's Luxury in Washington, DC in New York, het hulle by baie van die gewildste ondernemings in die stad geëet, soos Blue Hill, Carbone, ABC Kitchen, Daniel, Red Rooster en meer. (Trouens, die lys is so volledig dat dit moeilik is om tred te hou.) Dit is 'n gesin wat graag die kulturele tydsgees en die kookkuns wil aanpas, wat beslis nie altyd die geval was met vorige presidente nie - of ons inkomende een. Daar word byvoorbeeld selde gesien hoe Donald Trump uiteet, maar wanneer hy is, is dit by ou skole soos 21 Club.

Die Obamas het 'n belangrike model geskep om 'n algehele kulturele belangstelling in welstand en ondersteuning van die plaaslike kombuis te bevorder. Hopelik sal dit die eerste gesinne van die toekoms bly volg. Ter ere van hul baanbrekende restaurantkeuses, kyk ons ​​terug na 'n paar van die beste restaurante waarby Obamas tydens hul tyd in die Withuis geëet het.

Estela, president van New York, het 'n groot sprong gemaak toe hy by die sjef Ignacio Mattos en Thomas Carter se gesellige restaurant, wat deur die Middellandse See geïnspireer is, opgedaag het (wat as een van die Smaaklike etese beste nuwe restaurante in Amerika in 2014 en een van die 50 beste restaurante ter wêreld in 2016) in Houstonstraat in September 2014. Hy het die burrata met salsa verde en verkoolde brood, krokette en die andijveslaai met okkerneute, ansjovis en ubriaco rosso. Hy het nog nie probeer om Mattos en Carter se nuwer New York -plekke Café Altro Paradiso en Flora Bar te probeer nie, maar miskien sal hy dit as burger doen.

Red Rooster, New York Die president het in Maart 2011 baie aandag gegee aan sjef Marcus Samuelsson se Harlem -hotspot Red Rooster (wat destyds nuut was), toe hy 'n geldinsamelingsete vir 50 van sy ondersteuners aangebied het. Die president en sy gaste het kortgesnyde ribbetjies, kreefslaai met aspersies en ertjies, mieliebrood en patats doughnuts geëet.

Blue Hill, New York Die president en die presidentsvrou het 'n afspraak gehou by Dan Barber se beroemde voorpos in New York, in Mei 2009. Wat hulle van die super-plaaslike, seisoenale spyskaart geëet het, is onder die knie gehou, maar Michelle het na bewering van die martini gehou.

Cosme, New York POTUS en FLOTUS het by die sjef-eienaar Enrique Olvera se gewilde Mexikaanse restaurant ingeloer (sy sjef Daniela Soto-Innes het die James Beard Rising Star Chef of the Year-toekenning in 2016 gewen, en in 2015 is die restaurant genomineer vir die beste nuwe restaurant deur die James Beard Foundation) in die Flatiron -distrik tydens hul besoek aan New York in September 2016. Hulle het tuna -tostadas, die beroemde donker carnitas, blou garnale, burrata en meer.

State Road, Martha's Vineyard The Obamas is gereeld op Martha's Vineyard en het die afgelope ses somers by Mary en Jackson Kenworth se restaurant met 60 sitplekke in die West Tisbury geëet. Alhoewel State Road se spyskaart draai op grond van wat in die tuin en omliggende plase is, het president Obama al meer as een keer die volgende bestel: die kreefslaai met ertjies en fava bone, die gebraaide wingerd gestreepte bas met mieliepuree en geroosterde beet, houtgeroosterde entrecote met gebraaide uie en die State Road-sjokoladestafies. Die restaurant het pas 'n nuwe sjef, die genomineerde James Beard -toekenning, Randy Rucker, ingebring, en hy het reeds sy eie aanslag by die spyskaart begin voeg, soos 'n swaardvisbuik -crudo en eilandbaai -sint -jakobsspring. Die Obamas sal beslis 'n monster neem as hulle hierdie somer terugkeer na die wingerd.

Equinox, Washington, DC Net 'n paar dae voor die inhuldiging in Januarie 2009 het Barack Michelle na Todd Gray se seisoenale DC -bistro geneem om haar 45ste verjaardag te vier. As u regtig die volledige Obama -ervaring wil hê, vra dan om by hoektafel 21 te gaan sit en bestel die truffelmacaroni en kaas met elmboogmacaroni en Vermont -cheddar.

The Source, Washington, DC Dit is nog 'n DC -gunsteling van die Obamas. Die egpaar het na die Wolfgang Puck-restaurant gegaan vir Michelle se 47ste verjaardag en het sjef Scott Drewno se proe-spyskaart met asiatiese smeltkuns gehad.

Rose's Luxury, Washington, DC Michelle het eers by die warmste restaurant van DC (en een van die beste restaurante in die hele VSA) ingeloop, volgens Smaaklike ete) in Februarie 2015 saam met 'n groep van agt. Sjef Aaron Silverman het berig dat sy en die groep die grootste deel van die spyskaart geneem het, wat bokkonfyt, wortels met jogurt en harissa, sjokolademousse en 'n moordwors-lychee-slaai insluit. Die Obamas het weer teruggekeer vir die president se verjaardag in Augustus 2015. Terloops, as u nie in die Withuis is nie, is hierdie plek nie maklik om in te gaan nie. Berei voor om in 'n baie lang ry te wag, maar dit is die moeite werd.

Fig & Olive, Los Angeles Judd Apatow, Jamie Foxx, Jon Landau en meer van Hollywood se grootste name (120 daarvan, om presies te wees) het in September 2011 by Obama by Fig & Olive in LA aangesluit vir 'n privaat geldinsamelingsete. Die sjef Pascal Lorange het roosmaryn -lamstjoppies opgejaag met grasuie -gnocchi, gestreepte basfilet en papillote, organiese hoenderborsies uit die vrye reeks en meer vir die aandete van $ 17,900 per bord.

Sukiyabashi Jiro, Tokio President Obama het geëet by hierdie restaurant met drie Michelin-sterre in Tokio (nou internasionaal bekend, danksy Jiro Dreams of Sushi) saam met premier Shinzo Abe. Van die maaltyd het Obama gesê: "Beste sushi wat ek nog ooit in my lewe gehad het," maar hy het na bewering nie sy maaltyd klaargemaak nie.

Cosme, New York POTUS en FLOTUS het by die sjef-eienaar Enrique Olvera se gewilde Mexikaanse restaurant ingeloer (sy sjef Daniela Soto-Innes het die James Beard Rising Star Chef of the Year-toekenning in 2016 gewen, en in 2015 is die restaurant genomineer vir die beste nuwe restaurant deur die James Beard Foundation) in die Flatiron -distrik tydens hul besoek aan New York in September 2016. Hulle het tuna -tostadas, die beroemde donker carnitas, blou garnale, burrata en meer.

State Road, Martha's Vineyard The Obamas is gereeld op Martha's Vineyard en het die afgelope ses somers by Mary en Jackson Kenworth se restaurant met 60 sitplekke in die West Tisbury geëet. Alhoewel die spyskaart van State Road draai op grond van wat in die tuin en die omliggende plase is, het president Obama al meer as een keer die volgende bestel: die kreefslaai met pik-ertjies en fava-bone, die gebraaide wingerd gestreepte bas met mieliepuree en geroosterde beet, houtgeroosterde entrecote met gebraaide uie en die State Road-sjokoladestafies. Die restaurant het pas 'n nuwe sjef, die genomineerde James Beard -toekenning, Randy Rucker, ingebring, en hy het reeds sy eie aanslag by die spyskaart begin voeg, soos 'n swaardvisbuik -crudo en eilandbaai -sint -jakobsspring. Die Obamas sal beslis 'n monster neem as hulle hierdie somer terugkeer na die wingerd.

Equinox, Washington, DC Net 'n paar dae voor die inhuldiging in Januarie 2009 het Barack Michelle na Todd Gray se seisoenale DC -bistro geneem om haar 45ste verjaardag te vier. As u regtig die volledige Obama -ervaring wil hê, vra dan om by hoektafel 21 te gaan sit en bestel die truffelmacaroni en kaas met elmboogmacaroni en Vermont -cheddar.

The Source, Washington, DC Dit is nog 'n gunsteling van die D.A.M. -aand van die Obamas. Die egpaar het na hierdie Wolfgang Puck-restaurant gegaan vir Michelle se 47ste verjaardag en het sjef Scott Drewno se proe-spyskaart met asiatiese samesmelting gehad.

Rose's Luxury, Washington, DC Michelle het eers by die warmste restaurant van DC (en een van die beste restaurante in die hele VSA) ingeloop, volgens Smaaklike ete) in Februarie 2015 saam met 'n groep van agt. Sjef Aaron Silverman het berig dat sy en die groep die grootste deel van die spyskaart geneem het, wat bokkonfyt, wortels met jogurt en harissa, sjokolademousse en 'n moordwors-lychee-slaai insluit. Die Obamas het weer teruggekeer vir die president se verjaardag in Augustus 2015. Terloops, as u nie in die Withuis is nie, is hierdie plek nie maklik om in te gaan nie. Berei voor om in 'n baie lang ry te wag, maar dit is die moeite werd.

Fig & Olive, Los Angeles Judd Apatow, Jamie Foxx, Jon Landau en meer van Hollywood se grootste name (120 daarvan, om presies te wees) het in September 2011 by Obama by Fig & Olive in LA aangesluit vir 'n private geldinsamelingsete. Die sjef Pascal Lorange het roosmaryn -lamstjoppies opgejaag met grasuie -gnocchi, gestreepte basfilet en papillote, organiese hoenderborsies uit die vrye reeks en meer vir die aandete van $ 17,900 per bord.

Sukiyabashi Jiro, Tokio President Obama het geëet by hierdie restaurant met drie Michelin-sterre in Tokio (nou internasionaal bekend, danksy Jiro Dreams of Sushi) saam met premier Shinzo Abe. Van die maaltyd het Obama gesê: "Beste sushi wat ek nog ooit in my lewe gehad het," maar hy het na bewering nie sy maaltyd klaargemaak nie.


Eet soos die Obamas: die beste restaurante waarby hulle die afgelope 8 jaar geëet het

Daar is absoluut geen twyfel nie: die Obamas het 'n uitstekende smaak in restaurante. Tydens hul agt jaar in die Withuis, het president Barack Obama en presidentsvrou Michelle Obama 'n punt probeer om 'n paar van die coolste en nuwerwetsste plekke ter wêreld te probeer, van die Sukiyabashi Jiro van Tokio (van Jiro Dreams of Sushi roem) na die waansinnig gewilde Rose's Luxury in Washington, DC in New York, het hulle by baie van die gewildste ondernemings in die stad geëet, soos Blue Hill, Carbone, ABC Kitchen, Daniel, Red Rooster en meer. (In fact, the list is so exhaustive, it’s hard to keep track.) This is a family who loves to stay attuned to the cultural zeitgeist and the culinary scene, which is certainly not something that has always been the case with previous presidents — or our incoming one. Donald Trump, for example, is rarely seen dining out, but when he is, it’s at old-school establishments like 21 Club.

The Obamas have created an important model, helping to promote an overall cultural interest in wellness and support of local cuisine. Hopefully, it’s one that First Families of the future will continue to follow. In honor of their pioneering restaurant choices, here’s a look back at some of the best restaurants the Obamas ate at during their time in the White House.

Estela, New York President Obama made a big splash when he showed up to dine at chef Ignacio Mattos and Thomas Carter’s cozy, Mediterranean-inspired restaurant (which was named one of Smaaklike ete’s Best New Restaurants in America in 2014 and one of the World’s 50 Best Restaurants in 2016) on Houston Street in September 2014. He sampled the burrata with salsa verde and charred bread, croquettes, and the endive salad with walnuts, anchovy, and ubriaco rosso. He has yet to try Mattos and Carter’s newer New York City spots Café Altro Paradiso and Flora Bar, but maybe he will as a civilian.

Red Rooster, New York The President brought plenty of attention to chef Marcus Samuelsson’s Harlem hot spot Red Rooster (which was new at the time) in March 2011, when he hosted a fundraising dinner for 50 of his supporters. The President and his guests ate braised short ribs, lobster salad with asparagus and peas, cornbread, and sweet potato donuts.

Blue Hill, New York The President and First Lady had a date night at Dan Barber’s famous New York City outpost in May 2009. What they ate from the super-local, seasonal menu was kept under wraps, but Michelle reportedly liked the martinis.

Cosme, New York POTUS and FLOTUS stopped into chef-owner Enrique Olvera’s popular Mexican restaurant (its chef Daniela Soto-Innes won the James Beard Rising Star Chef of the Year Award in 2016, and in 2015, the restaurant was nominated for Best New Restaurant by the James Beard Foundation) in the Flatiron District during their visit to New York City in September 2016. They had tuna tostadas, the famous dark carnitas, blue shrimp, burrata, and more.

State Road, Martha’s Vineyard The Obamas are regulars on Martha’s Vineyard and have been eating at Mary and Jackson Kenworth’s 60-seat, seasonally focused West Tisbury restaurant for the past six summers. Though State Road’s menu rotates based on what’s in its garden and surrounding farms, President Obama has been known to order all of the following more than once: the lobster salad with snap peas and fava beans, the pan-roasted vineyard striped bass with corn puree and roasted beets, wood-grilled sirloin with buttermilk fried onions, and the State Road chocolate bars. The restaurant has just brought in a new chef, James Beard Award–nominee Randy Rucker, and he’s already started adding his own touch to the menu, like swordfish belly crudo and Island Bay scallops. The Obamas will surely be sampling those when they return to the vineyard this summer.

Equinox, Washington, D.C. Just days before the inauguration in January 2009, Barack took Michelle to Todd Gray’s seasonally driven D.C. bistro to celebrate her 45th birthday. If you really want the full Obama experience, ask to sit at corner table 21 and order the truffle macaroni and cheese with elbow macaroni and Vermont cheddar.

The Source, Washington, D.C. This is another D.C. date night favorite of the Obamas. The couple went to this Wolfgang Puck restaurant for Michelle’s 47th birthday and had chef Scott Drewno’s Asian-fusion tasting menu.

Rose’s Luxury, Washington, D.C. Michelle first stopped into D.C.’s hottest restaurant (and one of the best restaurants in the entire U.S., according to Smaaklike ete) in February 2015 with a group of eight. Chef Aaron Silverman reported that she and the group sampled most of the menu, which includes goat confit, carrots with yogurt and harissa, chocolate mousse, and a killer sausage-lychee salad. The Obamas returned again for the President’s birthday in August 2015. FYI, if you are not in the White House, this place is not easy to get in to. Prepare to wait in a very long line, but it’s worth your while.

Fig & Olive, Los Angeles Judd Apatow, Jamie Foxx, Jon Landau, and more of Hollywood’s biggest names (120 of them, to be exact) joined Obama at Fig & Olive in L.A. back in September 2011 for a private fundraising dinner. Chef Pascal Lorange whipped up rosemary lamb chops with chive gnocchi, striped bass filet en papillote, free-range organic chicken breast, and more for the $17,900-per-plate dinner.

Sukiyabashi Jiro, Tokyo President Obama ate at this three-Michelin-star restaurant in Tokyo (now internationally famous, thanks to Jiro Dreams of Sushi) with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. Of the meal, Obama said: “Best sushi I’ve ever had in my life,” but he reportedly didn’t finish his meal.


Eat Like The Obamas: The Best Restaurants They Dined At Over The Last 8 Years

There’s absolutely no question about it: The Obamas have great taste in restaurants. During their eight years in the White House, President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama made a point of trying out some of the coolest and most trendy spots in the world, from Tokyo’s Sukiyabashi Jiro (of Jiro Dreams of Sushi fame) to the insanely popular Rose’s Luxury in Washington, D.C. In New York City, they’ve dined at many of the city’s buzziest establishments like Blue Hill, Carbone, ABC Kitchen, Daniel, Red Rooster, and more.
