Michelle Obama dined at D.C.'s hottest restaurant last night.

Chef and owner Aaron Silverman confirmed chatter on Twitter that the First Lady had dinner at the Barracks Row destination yesterday evening. Her group ordered "most of the menu, with a few exceptions," the chef said via email. The group of about eight people were "very nice, having a good time."

But did the First Lady have to wait in line? "Let's just say when The President or The First Lady calls...you make some exceptions," Silverman said. "Not sure I even had a choice in the matter anyways." Secret Service has to take security precautions anytime the President or his family dines at a restaurant.
