Michelle Obama decided to start celebrating Mother’s Day early with a trip Saturday to a swanky New York City eatery.
Secret Service flanked the first lady and her mother, Marian Robinson, as they hit celebrity chef Mario Batali’s Lupa restaurant and enjoyed a five-course meal. The food looked nothing like the slop Obama wants to serve America’s school children.
The meals the pair indulged in start at $65 per person with an additional $49 to add wine.
But when word got out that they were there, local residents clamored to get a glimpse of the pair.
Like peasants trying to catch a peek of royalty, the “99 percent” who live above and around the restaurant ran to their fire escapes to see if they could get a look.
Interestingly, the “Black Lives Matter”crowd didn’t interrupt this lunch.
