jderrydeli.jpegAfter his fundraiser at the Fontainebleau, President Barack Obama and US Rep. Kendrick Meek stopped by Jerry's Famous Deli on South Beach (!), unannounced, so the prez could pick up a corned beef on rye with mustard and a corned beef on rye with mayo to go. What, Scarpetta, Hakkasan or Gotham didn't feed him? According to the Miami Herald's political writer Beth Reinhard, "Obama wandered from the order counter to the cash register. 'I'm promoting small business," he said.'"Jerry's small business? POTUS was misinformed. Nonetheless, he insisted on paying for the sandwiches, left the change for tip, posed for pix, and was off to the airport in a flash.[Miami Herald]
