Our friends at Restaurant Intelligence Agency rounded up local chefs and asked:
If you were invited to cook at the White House, what one dish would you make?
Jill Barron (MANA Food Bar): I would make my mushroom and brown rice sliders.
Troy Graves (Eve): I would cook up a great macaroni and cheese.
Koren Grieveson (avec): My choice to make for him would be a sausage dish with lots of pork and guanciale.
Paul Kahan (Blackbird): If I was invited to the White House, I would cook country-fried rabbit and rabbit chorizo. It's one of Obama's favorites at Blackbird. He had it for his celebratory dinner after clinching the primary.
Joncarl Lachman (HB Home Bistro): I would make shellfish choucroute. Pretty much becoming the specialty of the house at HB, it's comforting, relaxing, delicious and a little off-the-beaten-path.
Chris Pandel (The Bristol): If I had to cook at the White House, I would make my Caja China and roast a piggy in his yard.
Debbie Sharpe (Feast): I would serve him a hearty meal of roasted chicken with pan gravy, accompanied by lots of vegetables.
