The local NBC station has video of the couple entering and exiting Ristorante Tosca, at 12th and F streets, Saturday night. The couple were seated shortly before 8 p.m.

According to the local station’s report, an NBC staffer was dining in the restaurant and reports that the president “sipped a martini” while the first lady drank white wine.

The street outside the restaurant was shut down while the first couple ate, and seating at the restaurant was available only to those with reservations.
