Hey isn’t that… First lady Michelle Obama hitting 14th Street with White House chief hairstylist Johnny Wright on Thursday night. The two friends along with an East Wing assistant dined at Kapnos, Mike Isabella’s Greek chic outpost. Our sources tells us Obama bucked her signature bold colors for muted dark pants and a two-toned lightweight jacket.

And if a first lady (plus an Instagram star Mr. Wright) sighting isn’t enough, Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor upped the D.C.-elebrity factor when she dropped by Obama’s table in a private dining room. That is, of course, after Sotomayor got permission from the Secret Service. Sotomayor, dressed in black slacks and a black blouse (so that’s what they have on under those robes) dined with a party of four, including the U.S. Ambassador to Uruguay, Julissa Reynoso.
