While Wolfgang Puck‘s The Source at the Newseum has had no shortage of boldface-name diners, there’s nothing like a presidential visit to cement a D.C. restaurant’s celebrity status. Back in January, President Obama and Michelle Obama dined there for the first lady’s 47th birthday. Now, in honor of Presidents’ Day, the restaurant is offering a special menu recreating the meal the president and first lady had at the restaurant.
If you choose to go that route, the price per person in $85, excluding tax and gratuity. What’s for dinner?
Spicy Tuna Tartare, Sesame-Miso Cones, Shaved Bonito, Tobiko
Dim Sum Platter: “Tiny Dumplings,” Scallop & Shrimp Sui Mai, Organic Chicken & Wild Field Mushroom Dumplings, Crystal Garlic Chive Dumplings
Whole Wok-Fired Lobster, Chinese Garlic Sauce
Prime Filet, Smoked Onion Chili Sauce
15-Layer Carrot Cake, Cream Cheese, Candied Walnuts, Ginger Ice Cream
Now, if you truly want to re-enact the meal, the first lady “flashed a brief bit of skin between black knee-high boots and a dark sleeveless dress,” according to the Reliable Source. The president went sans tie.
