Michelle Obama Dines at an Olive Garden in Fort Worth, Texas
Helping to promote a healthier new kids menu at the notoriously unhealthy restaurant chain, the First Lady dug into Venetian chicken and salad.
Being the First Lady isn’t all dry-aged New York strip and caramelized Brussels sprouts. Last night, Michelle Obama had dinner at an Olive Garden in Fort Worth, Texas. The meal was part of her “Let’s Move!” campaign—Olive Garden’s parent company, Darden, is introducing healthier kids’ menus across its eateries, which include Red Lobster and Longhorn Steakhouse.
Obama visited the Forth Worth restaurant with White House chef Sam Kass following an event in Little Rock, Arkansas, according to press traveling with the First Lady. Per the report, her motorcade from the airport “passed an Olive Garden on the way to the Olive Garden.”
Dining at a long table with eight parents, Obama reportedly ate salad, minestrone soup, and Venetian chicken, and had limoncello mousse with vanilla cookie crust for dessert. No word on whether she took advantage of the bottomless breadsticks.
