The president and First Lady have dined here on Valentine's Day, as well as other non-celebratory occasions. We're told that they love almost any kind of seafood preparation — especially Chef Art's salmon — and lighter dishes such as the pistachio crusted chicken (pictured), arugula salad, and roasted vegetables. This is not to say they don't enjoy the buttermilk fried chicken, pecan pie, and humming bird cake now and then. Another fun factoid? They take home their leftovers.
