Magnolia's now serving what Obama ate

Rochester, N.Y. - A day after President Barack Obama ate lunch in Rochester Magnolia's Deli and Cafe on Park Avenue was still buzzing with excitement.

And the dish Obama ate has been added to their specials menu.

Donning the name Mr. President - it's a half of a grilled cheese sandwich with cheddar cheese on sour dough served with a bowl of tomato artichoke cheese soup its the meal Obama ate.

We already ordered it, Sherry Marche, when else can you get a Mr. President.

Owner Susan Palermo tells us she had no idea the United States Secret Service had eaten at her restaurant twice before the president's visit.

The Secret Service told her they chose it because of the food, service and atmosphere.

That was an honor, said Palermo. I think it's like everybody in the restaurant business, I'm sure there's people who say I don't like it there and others say I love it there, and we just want people to come here and enjoy themselves.

This is a great Rochester spot, said Marche, a lot of the spirit of Rochester is here, I think he got to see it because he came to Magnolia.
