Mexican restaurant Oyamel was the chosen spot for date night for the Obamas last evening.
It's no secret that along with french fries, Mexican cuisine is a favorite of the Obamas, especially First Lady Obama.
The coupled dined at the trendy restaurant at 401 7th Street, NW, in the District's Penn Quarter amid a crowd of 20-30 onlookers who later took pictures of the couple's departure.

No official word from the restaurant on what the Obamas had for dinner (you're not likely to get it), but we were told the staff and patrons were excited to see them both.
A staffer told us, "there was as much excitement as you could expect whenever they go anywhere."
We know that's a lot of excitement.
