Of course not.
The Obamas have landed at the Beach Plum Inn for dinner. Not exactly your average hot dog stand. From the website:
With panoramic views from every table, patrons gaze at the passing ships, cresting waves and iridescent setting sun . . . Ranked as best restaurant on Martha’s Vineyard and Top Six in New England by Food and Wine Magazine, the Beach Plum Inn Restaurant is also an Island hot spot. Featuring classical regional cuisine with an island flair, Executive Chef James McDonough prepares daily culinary works of art from the fresh native Atlantic seafood, aged beef and free-ranged chicken among other delights.
Glad to know the chickens can walk around before Chef McDonough wrings their necks.
I took a look at the menu. Here’s what I think the Obamas went for.
Steamed Twin Local Lobsters $39
With potatoes, vegetable du jour, and drawn butter
LOBSTER! Two of them on one plate. With butter to goose the cholesterol content. I hope this restaurateur is as big an idiot as the one the other night at the State Road Restaurant who spilled the beans on what the Obamas ordered AFTER BEING ASKED NOT TO. Maybe they figured this being the openness administration and all, nobody would mind.
Well, if the Obamas go to the State Road Restaurant next year, I’ll eat my computer. Really, I will.
Here’s the lovely Beach Plum Inn.
