(CNN) - Sarah Palin, who has kept a relatively low profile immediately after stepping down as Alaska governor, stepped back into the limelight with a visit to the media capital of the country.

The former Republican vice presidential candidate - in town to meet with the publisher of her upcoming book - dined Tuesday night at New York's storied media haven, Michael's Restaurant, with a group that included husband Todd and attorney Bob Barnett. The party - which arrived without a reservation, according to Michael's Manager Danny DiVella - requested a table in the front of the restaurant. A crowd gathered outside to catch a glimpse of the group through the window.

This morning, a jeans-clad Palin was spotted on 5th Avenue and 55th Street with her husband and daughter Piper, carrying her baby son Trigg. There has been no announcement of when her next public appearance may be.

Palin's first public post-resignation comments came at a National Rifle Association event in Anchorage over the weekend which did not include reporters.

    She's probably in town for a another all expense paid shopping spree so she can finally step out of her hillbilly warddrobe.

    Not surprising that she requested a table right in front of the restaurant so she can get as much attention as possible.

    Wow palin and romney both are getting ready to release their comic books, what else kind of book could these idiots be writing?

    This nit wit will do anything to stay in the news and CNN you just take the bait everytime. "they requested a table up front as the crowd gathered" give me a break. I guess if i was as easy as these media people to fool i would take advantage of it also.

    For someone who says the media is "picking on me", why should she go to such effort to be seen in public?

    uh oh, here will go the Liberals putting their nasty comments on. Amazing they can name call, be so hateful and venom oozing out of their mouths but geez let concerned people speak their mind at town hall meetings and the Left say they are being mean and planted. Please get a new country to live in you wacky Liberals! and please take ACORN with you that actually threaten people to vote for your Chosen One and charges dropped.

    Was she "lauded" with a Bronx cheer?

    Who cares where she is, or goes. Really.

    By the way, CNN, it is President Obama NOT Campaigner-in-Chief.
