Obama’s $30,800 Dinner Menu

They need more food on that menu in order to satisfy me. Roast a pig or something.

Celebrity chef Marcus Samuelsson hosted a dinner for President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama this week at his newest restaurant Red Rooster in Harlem.

The small dinner party of 50 shelled out $30,800 (€27,710) per plate for the party fundraiser.

Samuelsson is one of the president’s favorite chefs and has been called upon to cook a handful of state dinners for him in the past.

Samuelsson posted the evening menu on his new site, Food Republic, the morning after. Here’s what $30,800 will buy you at a dinner with the president.
