But the Obamas didn't have burgers--they reportedly had steak in the private dining room.
In response to a query from CNSNews.com, the BLT restaurant chain would not provide any details of the Obamas' visit, except to say they were "quite honored to have them as our guests."
But according to one food blog--in a town famous for leaks--the President and Mrs. Obama ordered a 10-ounce American Wagyu steak, which at $81 is the second most expensive item on the menu, just behind the 12-ounce American Wagyu for $92.
Dessert reportedly was a special-order red velvet cake.
The a la carte dinner menu, posted online, shows the Obamas had plenty of food to choose from: The appetizers at BLT Steak range in price from $11 (for a Bibb lettuce salad with mustard dressing) to $34 for a dozen oysters.
Entrees range from $26 for lemon-rosemary chicken to $92 for the 12-ounce Wagyu Ribeye.
Side dishes include an $8 order of French fries or onion rings. The most expensive side dish is $13 for "Hen of the Woods" mushrooms.

I milked the cow, had porridge for breakfast and peas for supper.
Will Moochie let us peons eat cake?
One of the best meals I ever ate was at a BLT in Manhattan. Cost me 200$ and was well worth every penney.
As much as I dislike Obama and his policies, if we didn’t foot the bill, I’m not sure this is news worthy of criticism.
I’ve had prom dates that were this expensive, and Mother’s Day that make it pale in comparison. Not every day, mind you, or even every year. The Obama’s are Millionaires, there’s probably no food on earth too expensive for their budget.
On the other hand, if we had to pay for her birthday bash, she should have had some oatmeal and a twinkie with a candle jammed in it. Happy Birthday M. Antoinette!
Sasquatch greedily scarfs down the super-expensive Obama burger.
These amazing pigs and social parasites are partying endlessly on the taxpayer (Republican) dollars.
This shouldn’t even be a story. I’m glad that no one follows me around writes about my meals. Some things should be private without any regard to politics and this is one of those things.
The First Fat-ass strikes again. I bet she could out-eat Adam Richman.
Last time we ate out was for some McDonald dollar burgers.
Nothing is off limits on the Wookie Diet.
You miss the point. Moochelle is always trying to tell us the serfs what we can and can’t eat, and that we don’t eat healthy foods. They are such hypocrites! They eat at the finest restaurants, take the most expensive vacations, and the zero says he’ll never rest until we all have jobs. Does that mean he won’t rest his jaws or Air Force One?
I bet she didn’t have to eat her peas...
I bet she didn’t have to eat her peas...
Gettin’ what they can while the gettin’s good. I CANNOT WAIT for November. Has anybody lined up a priest for the exorcism it will take to get these toords out of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue?
Just blocks from the WH, at BLT you can choose between an order of perfectly battered onion rings, potato skins or jalapeno mashed potatoes to go along with your American wagyu ribeye. And dipping sauces-- dip $50 tender steak into: Steak sauce- 3 Mustards- Red Wine- Bearnaise- Blue Cheese- Peppercorn- Horseradish- BBQ
BLT offers a hanger steak, filet, bone-in or boneless NY strip, and a bone-in ribeye. Theyve also got a porterhouse for two ($84)......Cooked to perfection (med-rare), nicely charred on the outside, extremely flavorful on the inside with intense marbling action going on. I should also mention that all of their steaks are broiled at 1700 degrees and finished off with a homemade herb butter.
For the high money rollers out there, feel free to choose from a selection of Kobe beef options. This is a type of super prime beef (includes the American Wagyu brand of beef) which is fed and raised in a way which promotes extreme flavor awesomeness. But its expensive. Get ready to drop $92 on the American Wagyu ribeye and an unheard of $24 PER OUNCE for the Australian Kobe strip.
They got fantastic dessert offerings.......peanut butter chocolate mousse with banana ice cream or the warm chocolate tart with pistachio ice cream.
I eat steak at the American Legion.
A 12 oz. New York Strip for $11.00.
I would be afraid to have a bowel movement and flush $81.00 down the drain.
An $11 dollar steak is always going to taste like an $11 steak. Kobe beef is literally something to die for. I’d eat it all the time if I were rich, but I’m not, so it’s special occasions only.
No porn on FR. I might not be able to define porn, but I know it when I see it, and those steaks are XXX.
Then too, we have a chain called "Lone Star" and it has Texas style steaks. Not unlike the "Outback" in the US that serves up pseudo Australian food.
