(CNN) - President Barack Obama and his wife went out to dinner Monday night, venturing to a Martha's Vineyard restaurant they also visited on their vacation last year.

The Obamas, joined by White House senior adviser Valerie Jarrett and friends Eric and Cheryl Whitaker, went to The Sweet Life Cafe, described on its website as "one of Martha's Vineyard's fine-dining restaurants" featuring contemporary French-American cuisine.

"Dinner is served in one of the intimate dining rooms of the restored Victorian home or in the romantic garden under the twinkling lights," according to the website.

    This really isn't news. It also isn't helping the criticism he is getting over the amount of vacation time the First Family has enjoyed. The country is in terrible shape. Unemployment, Deficit, Economy, continuing to cover every moment of this vacation is just going to fuel the anger of the American public.

    What are you insinuating CNN? That our POTUS is un-American for eating French cuisine? Your tagline is deplorable! This is NOT news worthy. Keep on bringing this and anything about sarah palin in your news to get ratings....shame on you.
