President, First Lady Celebrate Michelle Obama's 47th Birthday

Photo Courtesy - The White House(WASHINGTON) -- Journalists traveling with the president Monday night reported that Obama took his wife to celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck's restaurant, The Source, for dinner on her 47th birthday.

The first couple left the White House by motorcade around 7:20 p.m. ET, braving an icy, light rain to travel several blocks down Pennsylvania Ave. for the dinner. They spent a little more than two hours in the sleek, modern, three-story restaurant with a menu billed as "pan-Asian" by a local food critic where a seven-course prix fixe dinner can run $125 per person without alcohol ($200 with wine or sake).

But when asked what was on the menu for the president and first lady, the White House was mum on the topic.

Word also had it that they left their girls, Malia and Sasha, back at the White House and it was just the couple dining out Monday night.

Last year, Obama took his wife to another popular Washington establishment, Restaurant Nora, which billed itself as America's first certified organic restaurant, for her 46th birthday.
