And, as a tribute to another victorious State of the Union speech, I compiled a small list of favorite eateries (admittedly from research done by others) where the POTUS likes to go. The President has a penchant for food and he has plenty of choice in the nation’s capital.

1. The Oval Room – Only steps away from 1600 Pennsylvania Ave, here you can rub elbows with the DC’s movers and shakers.
2. Napoleon’s Bistro Lounge – Make your next cocktail the Black Forest Berry Bonapartini in honor of Obama’s favorite drink.
3. Restaurant Nora – America’s first certified organic restaurant also plays host to the First Couple during birthdays and anniversaries.
4. Georgetown Cupcakes – Stars of the hit series DC Cupcakes, the sisters helped prepare a private celebration for Sasha’s 10th birthday.
5. Good Stuff Eatery – The beefy chef honored Obama’s inauguration this year by bringing back a gooey, sloppy mess called the ‘Prez Obama burger’
6. Equinox – Ask for table 21, next to the kitchen. Its where they enjoyed truffled mac and cheese days before the inauguration.
7. Blue Duck Tavern – Listed in “100 Very Best Restaurants” in the February, 2013 Washingtonian magazine. Article is due online on February 19th.
8. Ben’s Chili Bowl – The website video of the President proves he loves this, in his words ‘terrific’ Washington landmark.
