POTUS and FLOTUS Feast on Carnitas at Cosme

The first couple stopped for a meal at NYC's best Mexican restaurant

Amid meetings, speeches and the opening of the 71st UN General Assembly, the POTUS managed to grab a meal at one of New York's best Mexican restaurants, Enrique Olvera's perennially packed Cosme.

A ticket from the night shows that the table of six, which included the FLOTUS, ordered a number of the dishes the restaurant is known for, including the rich duck carnitas cooked in Mexican Coke, a ball of burrata "in the weeds" and a round of tuna tostadas. The only thing missing from the ticket is an order of the famed corn husk meringue and mousse—which was hopefully simply sent out.

The Obamas are no strangers to New York's hotter restaurants; two years ago they dined at Ignacio Mattos's Soho restaurant, Estela, where jeans, not jackets, are the attire of choice for most.

As for the Cosme team, this isn't their only big event this fall. Their new, more casual spot, Atla, in Noho should make an appearance come November.
