Last week Obama headed to the Upper East Side to wine and dine Wall Street.
The DNC fundraiser at tony restaurant Daniel cost attendees $35,800 each, and the event netted $2.4 million.
Obama talked to his audience, which included hedge funder Marc Lasry and the CEO of UBS Americas Robert Wolf, about topics ranging from the economy to the 2012 race to Afghanistan.
According to Businessweek,
The guests dined on Maine lobster salad with roasted beets, duos of Black Angus beef, braised short ribs with young spinach, and roasted tenderloin with stuffed potato and hen of the woods. Daniel is the eponymous restaurant of award winning restaurateur Daniel Boulud. The meal was prepared by Boulud himself.
The dinner was part of Obama's plan to win back the group of financiers that helped him cruise past McCain in 2008, many of whom were turned off by the President's labeling of them as "fat cats" near the beginning of his term.
