Birthday girl Michelle Obama was surprised Saturday night by President Obama and a small group of close friends and family at Nora, a posh D.C. restaurant known as a pioneer in the organic food movement.
The guest list included First Grandma Marian Robinson, Attorney General Eric Holder, White House Adviser Valerie Jarrett and Jocelyn Frye, a domestic policy adviser to both the president and first lady.
According to The Washington Post, Chief Benjamin Lambert “had plenty of time to prepare for the first couple’s first visit.”
And he claims he wasn’t nervous, not for a minute, even as two Secret Service agents stood guard in the kitchen while he prepared their meal: a special lamb dish for her, and pan-seared Maine lobster and saffron risotto for him.
