The Obama family enjoys high-end beef for everything from birthday celebrations to oficial events.
Michelle Obama celebrated her 48th birthday last week with her husband and friends at a D.C. steakhouse where the menu features a $28 hamburger named "The Obama."
BLT Steak describes its Obama burger as an 8-oz. American Kobe burger with bacon, cheddar cheese, burnt tomato ketchup, and scallion mustard.
American Kobe beef is from a line of Japanese Wagyu cattle, which traditionally are fed a special diet and massaged to produce the fat-marbling for which the meat is prized.
