White House Neighborhood Restaurant Hopes to Lure Obamas

President and Mrs. Obama aren't your average diners, but that doesn't mean they're not looking for new places to grab a bite...entourage and all. In fact, First Lady Michelle Obama told Fox's Washington affiliate Fox 5 recently that the couple is always on the lookout for new restaurants.

Rumor has it Roti Mediterranean Grill is hoping to fit the bill. The Chicago-based "healthy" fast-food joint just opened its first chain in DC a mere city block from the White House, or the length of a Presidential-sized motorcade.

Row 2, Seat 4 hears Michelle Obama's staff has dined there already. Mrs. Obama's Social Secretary Julianna Smoot has made no fewer than five stops, we hear. Word is that Roti is even more interested in recruiting the First Lady as a patron than the big man himself.

This calorie-savvy restaurant, which calls its food, "healthy Mediterranean cuisine" could fit nicely into the First Lady's anti-obesity mission.
