President Obama and Michelle Obama had a date night Thursday in honor of the president's birthday.

The couple dined at Rasika West End on New Hampshire Avenue, according to a White House pool report.

No word on what they ordered at the posh Indian restaurant, although there are plenty of options that would make the first lady, an advocate for healthy eating, happy. Rasika is known for its palak chaat — a crispy spinach appetizer.

Obama turned 52 on Sunday. He golfed on Saturday at Andrews Air Force Base and spent Sunday at Camp David.

On Saturday, the Obama family heads to Martha's Vineyard, Mass., for an eight-day vacation.

But before the president gets out of town, he'll be fielding questions from reporters on Friday afternoon at a press conference, his first since April.
