Michelle O: Let them eat swordfish

Written By: Bob - Nov• 30•11

I have found it inspiring that America’s First Lady has decided to fight the war on obesity the same way that Elvis Presley decided to fight the war on drugs… by consuming everything in reach.

First lady Michelle Obama enjoyed a lovely evening at Co Co. Sala on F Street on Monday night. A Yeas & Nays source tells us she dined with seven friends for dinner and, of course, dessert — which featured an edible chocolate sculpture and house-made artisanal chocolates by Chef Santosh Tiptur. We’re told Obama’s favorite savory was Chef Tiptur’s Moroccan Swordfish Sliders with chermoula marinade, fennel salad, aged pecorino and hazelnut coffee dressing. The restaurant owners later posted to Twitter about their excitement of having her as a guest. “It was such an honor to have first lady Michelle Obama dine at Co Co. Sala last night. What an exciting and humbling experience!”

    Glad that she had a delicious meal and some quality time with her friends … which I am sure does not happen often. I wish she would have invited me (lol).
