(Washington Post) It’s the hardest reservation to snag in all of D.C. — but not if you’re the president. POTUS and FLOTUS had their Valentine’s Day dinner at Minibar, Jose Andres’ super-exclusive restaurant in Penn Quarter (now joined by its sister bar experience, Barmini). There’s no word on what the president ate, but past menus have included such items as braised pig tail, beans and clams with edible shells, and a semi-frozen marshmallow. The restaurant didn’t impress our critic, Tom Sietsema, who wrote: “Minibar is like watching a bunch of trailers when you’re hungry for a movie. It’s not that I’m against novel approaches to cooking but, rather, food that places the intellectual above the delicious — the head before the heart.”
