After ringing in the New Year with a low-key celebration with family and friends, the first couple enjoyed their first dinner of 2015 at one of the swankiest restaurants in Hawaii.
President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama enjoyed a nearly three-hour, multi-course meal Thursday night at Vintage Cave, an exclusive fine dining restaurant in Honolulu.
With a prix-fixe meal of $295 per person and expensive wines likely paired with the haute cuisine meal, a dinner for two can run upwards of $1,000, according to Honolulu Magazine.
And the exclusive spot also offers “memberships” to prospective clients who can apply to become half-million dollar “charter members” or $50,000 “special members.”
The Obamas arrived at the restaurant at a quarter-to-seven in the evening and left nearly three hours later at 9:42 p.m., according to the press pool report.
