Obama, first lady dine in Georgetown

President Obama, the first lady and senior adviser Valerie Jarrett capped off a hectic three days hosting the inaugural U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit with a hearty Italian meal.

The trio traveled to Fiola Mare, a popular Italian restaurant on the Georgetown waterfront, for a late dinner Wednesday night. 

The eatery, known most for its seafood and pasta dishes, opened in February and has quickly become one of the hottest reservations in town.

Ironically, a local blog reported that the president had celebrated his birthday at the restaurant on Monday night, but White House press secretary Josh Earnest told reporters that was untrue

Obama might have heard good things about the restaurant from his second-in-command. Vice President Biden and his wife, Jill, were spotted dining at the restaurant early last month. 

Few details about how the president ate were immediately available but when asked about his dinner by a reporter after returning to the White House, the president offered a cursory, “it was good.”
