Barack Obama, Tutta Bella Owner Chat Over Lunch In Pioneer Square

POTUS-tested, Secret Service approved!
While President Obama's visit to Seattle today was remarkably low-pro, dude's gotta eat. So just where did he sit down to fill up, and with whom?

Grand Central Baking Company in Pioneer Square, alongside Tutta Bella owner Joe Fugere. The two men, joined by Inn at Discovery Coast (Long Beach, WA) proprietor Tiffany Turner and other government officials, sat down for lunch at approximately 11:30 a.m. to discuss small business issues, says Joshua Welter of the Main Street Alliance.

But most importantly, what did the Prez order?

Half of a turkey and chutney sandwich and a Skagit Valley Salad, reports Welter. According to Grand Central's online menu ("pretty decadent," Obama remarked), the salad contains "Willie Greens baby spinach, sweet local strawberries, Gothberg Farm's goat's milk feta cheese, Walla Walla sweet onions and sliced almonds tossed in a strawberry balsamic dressing."
