Obama: Restaurant Reviewer



This has started to make the rounds already, but I can’t resist.

Courtesy of Serious Eats: Back in 2001, then state senator Barack Obama appeared as a guest on Chicago’s popular roundtable restaurant review show, Check Please! .

The station will be airing the never-before-seen show to celebrate the program’s 100th episode on Friday, January 16th. In the meantime, they’ve released a teaser of Barack waxing poetic about the Dixie Kitchen, where he got the “Southern Sampler” because he “just couldn’t make up his mind.” Hmm, not sure that’s very presidential. What is? Having your priorities straight: Peach cobbler #1, corn pancakes #2.
