CNSNews.com) - Michelle Obama celebrated her 48th birthday Tuesday night with her husband and friends at a D.C. steakhouse where the menu features a $28 hamburger named "The Obama."

BLT Steak describes its "Obama" burger as an 8-ounce American Kobe burger with bacon, cheddar cheese, burnt tomato ketchup, and scallion mustard.

American Kobe beef is from a line of Japanese Wagyu cattle, which traditionally are fed a special diet and massaged to produce the fat-marbling for which the meat is prized.


But the Obamas didn't have burgers--they reportedly had steak in the private dining room.

In response to a query from CNSNews.com, the BLT restaurant chain would not provide any details of the Obamas' visit, except to say they were "quite honored to have them as our guests."


But according to one food blog--in a town famous for leaks--the President and Mrs. Obama ordered a 10-ounce American Wagyu steak, which at $81 is the second most expensive item on the menu, just behind the 12-ounce American Wagyu for $92.


Dessert reportedly was a special-order red velvet cake.


The a la carte dinner menu, posted online, shows the Obamas had plenty of food to choose from: The appetizers at BLT Steak range in price from $11 (for a Bibb lettuce salad with mustard dressing) to $34 for a dozen oysters.


Entrees range from $26 for lemon-rosemary chicken to $92 for the 12-ounce Wagyu Ribeye.


Side dishes include an $8 order of French fries or onion rings. The most expensive side dish is $13 for "Hen of the Woods" mushrooms.


Most desserts are $10, and they include crêpe soufflé with passion fruit sauce and mini doughnuts with chocolate sauce and coffee ice cream.


"The Obama" is one of 5 burgers listed on the restaurant's "Political Burger Board." At $28, it is the second most expensive burger, right after "The Bi Partisan," which costs $32. The Bi Partisan is also an 8 ounce Kobe beef burger, topped with lobster, cheddar cheese and "black truffle buttermilk dressing." The other three burgers--including "The Pork Barrel"--cost either $16 or $18.


The restaurant's assistant general manager told the blog Foodorama that Michelle Obama "dines with us quite regularly."

Farnsworths take:
Not much to say really, just that I'm still waiting on that "shared sacrifice" and that "putting some skin into the game"

    Dang !!! When will they ever stop! Remember just a few months ago when they were caught having that $500 bottle of wine? Just imagine how many groceries that would..... Oh wait. My bad.

    Let me take a guess. You are one of those who actually believes the tax payers pay for the First Lady's dinner party. Right? Of course you do !!! That is a given. But in the slim chance that you are a reasonable person and do not ( very slim) ... it is none of your snoopy business how and where the First Family celebrates special occasion dinners. NONE.

    Pathetic!

    every dinner is a special occasion home boy, especially if we are picking up the tab.

    But like I said, which you ignore, they are the ones spouting off about shared sacrifice. Where is the example pinhead?
