US President Barack Obama gave his wife Michelle a birthday surprise on Saturday, treating the First Lady to a slap-up meal at Restaurant Nora, a celebrated organic eatery in Washington.
There was no sign of the couple's daughters Malia and Sasha as Michelle, who turned 46 yesterday, arrived with the president wearing a black, long-sleeved dress to a table full of family and close friends.
Restaurant Nora, which describes itself as America's first certified organic restaurant, has a chef's tasting menu at $66 (Dh242.4) and main courses that include Sauteed Amish Veal Scalloppine and Shichimi Crusted Tofu Hot Pot.
