Michelle Obama

February 4, 2014

Did the air feel a little crisper on Thursday? Perhaps you felt a stronger-than-usual urge to get up and Move? It was probably because First Lady ~Michelle Obama~ was in town, and dining at Cotogna, no less. Our spy said it was quite the sea of black cars, policemen, and suits outside.

First Lady ~Michelle Obama~ was making the rounds in the Bay Area on Tuesday June 14th, first dining on a brunch prepared by Alice Waters while at The Claremont Hotel Club & Spa in Berkeley. She then attended a luncheon prepared by chef Gustavo Romero Veytia of Credo in San Francisco’s Julia Morgan Ballroom; the luncheon was hosted by ballroom owners Clint and Janet Reilly. Chef Gustavo, after learning of Mrs. Obama’s favorite food, created a special order of tamales just for her, made from his family’s recipe.
