It’s Obama Time in Washington, D.C. and throughout the United States and the world. And at The Whitney restaurant in Detroit.
Starting on Inauguration Day, January 20, The Whitney will add a special menu of Obama favorite foods to celebrate the inauguration of Barack Obama, the first African American to be elected President. The exclusive lunch menu, with items ranging from $4 to $12, will be offered January 20 – 31 with 20 percent of every Obama menu meal contributed to the Capuchin Soup Kitchen in Detroit. Select items also will be available on The Whitney’s dinner menu.
The Obama menu has been selected from a series of accredited articles and websites listing the President-elect’s favorite foods. It will be anchored by the Obama family chili recipe that he serves to his own family, served over white rice with grated cheddar cheese, onions and sour cream. Other items on the special Obama menu include Southern Fried Chicken and macaroni with broccoli, shrimp and grits, Obama’s favorite burger, and Oreo Cookie Cheesecake, reportedly the President-elect’s favorite dessert. The beverage of choice will be another reported Obama favorite, Black Forest Berry Honest tea. Reservations are suggested for Inauguration Day lunch.
