First Lady Michelle Obama apparently really likes Chez Billy Sud. She dined at the Georgetown French restaurant for the fourth time last night.

A tipster tells us Obama ordered steak frites—but substituted roasted potatoes for fries—and a vodka on the rocks with lime.

She dined with Kathleen Biden, the Vice President’s daughter-in-law, and another unidentified friend on the patio.

“People were giving them some space but there were definitely some gawkers at the windows of the wine bar [Bar à Vin next door] looking out onto the patio,” the source says. “Her presence didn’t go unnoticed.”
