‘The Restaurant Is A Hotspot For The Political Elite’

“The restaurant is a hotspot for the political elite on both sides of the aisle,” the news outlet reported. “Barack and Michelle Obama have been there. So has Ivanka Trump. (Her father has not.)”

“Pretty much any senator or big wig you can think of has been spotted there at some point,” noted the Washingtonian.
