President Obama warmed up for his upcoming Martha’s Vineyard excursion with an outing Wednesday night at Washington’s latest “it” restaurant, Fiola Mare. Michelle and the Obamas’ personal consigliere, Valerie Jarrett, came along too. ValJar never misses anything good.
The place gets rave reviews, overlooks the Potomac River, and serves entrees for the One Percent generally priced from $30-$50. Yes, just the entrees.
Only the best for the commander-in-chief and his minion, who need a rest from time to time from fighting for economic justice:
And the place is suitable politically correct, claiming:
Our menus are based on the finest, freshest ingredients available and therefore change daily and seasonally. We are committed to sourcing sustainable seafood that does not jeopardize the vitality and well-being of our oceans.
Ahh yes, Fiola Mare is committed to fishing the oceans, not warming them. And not fishing them too much. Thank you.
The White House pool reporter for the evening noted that “several African leaders” were at the restaurant a couple of nights ago.
Oh, gosh, I hope they expensed it to their people. It’s a business trip, after all, and no good autocrat should have to spend their own money. Although, presumably, ours did, although we picked up the carfare.
