Obamas Dine at Bourbon Steak
The First Couple celebrated 20 years of marriage with a two-hour meal.
We all know where the Obamas celebrated their anniversary this year: With Mitt Romney, Jim Lehrer, Big Bird (in spirit, at least), and the rest of the country for the first presidential debate. And it’s probably safe to say it wasn’t the best anniversary the Obamas ever enjoyed, seeing as the President was totally outzingered by the Republican candidate. But what better place to nurse those podium wounds than a tony private dining room at Bourbon Steak, where Obama and his lady dined this Saturday in honor of their 20 years of marriage?
A source told Eater DC that though chef Adam Sobel prepared a special menu for the couple—which Obama Foodorama shared included seared foie gras, osetra caviar, uni (sea urchin), and quail egg—they ultimately decided to dine à la carte. Obama chatted about his dinner at a fundraiser Sunday night, as well—giving a shout-out to his “wonderful” young waiter, whom we can only assumed was tipped well for impressing POTUS and FLOTUS so thoroughly.
