What do you put on the menu when you’re serving not one, but two high-powered presidents?
President Donald Trump is hosting Chinese President Xi Jinping at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida tonight for a high-stakes summit, with the urgent threat of North Korea’s nuclear ambitions and tensions over trade on the agenda.
Though the meetings might get awkward at times — Trump has, of course, been vocally critical of China — at least the two presidents will eat well.
The White House has provided a pool reporter the list of dinner choices for the presidents and their wives.
Here’s what’s on the menu for tonight:
Caesar Salad with homemade focaccia croutons, parmigiano-reggiano
Pan-seared Dover Sole with champagne sauce
Herb-roasted new potatoes
Haricots verts, Thumbelina Carrots
Dry Aged Prime New York Strip Steak
Roasted Root Vegetables
Chocolate cake with vanilla sauce and dark chocolate sorbet
Trio of Sorbet (Lemon, Mango, and Raspberry)
2014 Chalk Hill Chardonnay from the Sonoma Coast
2014 Girard Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley
