President Obama this evening took Michelle out to the restaurant BLT Steak to celebrate her 48th birthday, which is today. Also along were Valerie Jarrett “and other friends,” according to the pool report.
BLT Steak, just blocks from the White House, touts itself as an “American Steakhouse” that “combines bistro ambiance with steakhouse fare.”
It’s actually a high end chain, with 11 locations around the world.
Entrees typically are in the $40 range, though you can order the 12 oz American Wagyu Ribeye and part with $92 if you are so inclined, according to the menu.
I would never go there because it would confuse my palate, since I’d arrive thinking bacon lettuce and tomato but would have to order steak, since there’s no BLT on the menu.
I love BLT’s.
Bait and switch if you ask me.
UPDATE: Looks like the restaurant didn’t get the message that Obama is a Man of the People and a Middle Class Warrior.
From the latest pool report:
Here’s a fun fact: BLT now features “Obama burgers” as part of their burger specials. POTUS burger is $28 for 8 oz Kobe American burger, w cheddar bacon, burnt tomato ketchup and spicy Scallion mustard.
