Eater's Michelle Obama Dining Map has been getting a lot of update action lately.

The First Lady kicked off a three week D.C. restaurant spree by hitting up the new Turkish restaurant, Ottoman Taverna, in late May. She dined with a group of about 11 people at the new Mt. Vernon Triangle restaurant.

Last week, the First Lady joined the President at Oyamel, a restaurant they've visited several times throughout the presidency. It was date night for the pair at José Andrés' Penn Quarter Mexican restaurant.

Finally, Obama was spotted at Masseria over the weekend with former White House chef Sam Kass. A rep confirmed her appearance. This is her third visit to Nick Stefanelli's ambitious tasting menu-centric restaurant.
