Rolls Out 3-Course Lobster Dinner For France’s Macron

  • Reservations at Fiola Mare are likely to become more elusive after President Joe Biden and first lady Jill Biden chose to take French President Emmanuel Macron and first lady Brigitte Macron to the upscale Georgetown Italian seafood restaurant for dinner during their first state visit.
  • Singer Jon Batiste, a New Orleans native, is slated to entertain the roughly 300 to 400 guests after their three-course dinner tonight, which includes Maine lobster and American artisan cheeses and will be served in a pavilion erected on the White House South Lawn. The spectacle, which officials and outside evening planning and design production firm Fete started to organize two months ago, will be unified under a red, white, and blue theme, symbolizing the shared colors of the French and U.S. flags.
