President Obama will be having his Wall Street fundraising dinner tomorrow at ABC Kitchen in New York. [via Bloomberg]The exclusive, invite-only event is targeted towards investment bankers and hedge funders, and dinner will be $35,800 per plate. It is being hosted by Evercore Partners CEO Ralph Schlosstein and his wife, Jane Hartley co-founder of the economic and political advisory firm Observatory Group.

The guest list also includes financial heavy hitters like Marc Lasry, managing partner and founder of Avenue Capital Group, Robert Wolf, UBS’s chairman for the Americas, and Antonio Weiss, global head of investment banking at Lazard.

Although most of the details surrounding the dinner are under wraps, the restaurant itself is still open for business. We decided to go and check out how the president and his guests may be dining.

The restaurant is down a very unassuming street in Flatiron.

Some cool designs at the door.

In we go!

There were multiple tables set up neatly for dinner.

We sat in a back lounge area as it was too early for dinner.

There was a counter where chefs worked.

It had a very rustic feel, with a tree in the middle of the room.

The lounge area also leads to ABC Home, the restaurant's home appliance shop.

There was another dining room beyond the back lounge. It looked pretty spacious.

The ceiling added to the rustic wooden feel of the restaurant.

We ordered some pretty cocktails.

The crab toast was delicious, hopefully they'll serve some to President Obama and his guests.

We didn't forget to check out the bathroom.
