Tnr Slideshow: Would You Like Fries With That, Mr. President?

 

After President-elect Obama visited more D.C. restaurants in one week than Bush had in two years, foodies anticipated a D.C. culinary renaissance.

"I think that national media will be taking another look at the D.C. dining scene," said Amanda McClements, a local food blogger. "I think Obama is bringing a sort of celebrity that we haven't seen in Washington in a long time."

The First Couple has been doing their part and keeping their plates full. Click through today's TNR slideshow to see where Barack and Michelle have been dining in the District.
