Hey, isn’t that… former first lady Michelle Obama dining with friends in Shaw on Saturday night?
Mrs. Obama and five pals grabbed a table at San Lorenzo, an Italian restaurant that opened in June. The Tuscan eatery is owned by chef Massimo Fabbri, who before venturing out on his own for 16 years spearheaded the kitchen Tosca, another favorite of the Obamas (the former first couple spent a date night there in 2011, and the entire Obama Cabinet had a farewell lunch there in 2017).
The former first lady and co. dug into a custom menu in the restaurant’s private dining room alongside another large party. She was instantly recognized by other diners and the entire restaurant, we’re told, erupted in applause when Mrs. Obama left after her three-hour long meal.
