Washington (CNN) - President Barack Obama went out to dinner Friday night with first lady Michelle Obama and senior aide Valerie Jarrett for a birthday dinner for Jarrett at a certified organic restaurant.
The trio dined at Restaurant Nora in Washington’s Dupont Circle neighborhood.
“The menu changes daily, offering a la carte items and a four-course chef’s tasting menu,” the restaurant’s website says. “The wine list presents over 100 exceptional wines from small producers, many of them using organically grown grapes and sustainable practices.”
Founded in 1979, Nora bills itself as the nation’s certified organic restaurant. According to its website, at least 95% of the food it serves comes from organic farmers, growers and suppliers.
One hundred percent of the restaurant is wind-powered, according the website, drawing its electricity from provider Direct Energy wind farms in Nebraska, Iowa, Texas and Indiana.
Do you know this Organic is the biggest bs in USA to make fast buck?
Good Mr. President enjoy it and understand their are millions of Americans that enjoy and love organic food to. Don't support Monsanto and the biotech companies that are trying to kill organic farming!!
Really? What a ridiculous puff piece of an article.
OMG with all the crap going on in this Country who gives a flip.
We have a long way to go !
Is it possible to politicize a meal any more than this?
This sounds like the pilot episode of Portlandia. I only eat free range tofu that's raised locally and educated at the Montessori school before drinking my sustainable wine.
I suppose all the ice cream cones he licks are supplied by environmentally friendly cows.
What a waste of taxpayer money.
Hmmmm... I don't recall puff pieces such as this one when Bush was in office....I wonder why?
You know who paid for that one [us]. Three of the most hated people in american. " if you like your plan you can kept your plan[just for one more year] period" if you like your doctor you can kept your doctor [just for one more year] period."
It says in the article that Nora gets its electricityfrom wind farms in Iowa, Texas, Nebraska and Indiana but, they are in D.C. How is it possible to do this? How do they know that?
