President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama enjoyed a romantic date night in Paris, France, dining in the famed city just steps from the Eiffel Tower.

Dining at the neighborhood bistro La Fontaine de Mars, the President and First Lady shared the restaurant with other diners - and a large security contingent.

"We couldn't see him, but apparently he ordered the lamb," a patron who tried to get a glimpse of the first couple from outside the bistro said.

"[Officials] literally turned the city upside down - with traffic stopped all over - so he could have a 'quiet dinner with his family,'" said another witness.

The whole Obama family traveled across the Atlantic this time.

After dinner, Michelle and Barack Obama took a ride along the Seine River before retreating to the U.S. ambassador's residence, according to the AP.

Earlier in the day, the couple's two adorable daughters, Malia, 10, and Sasha, 7, joined their parents for a sightseeing trip to Notre Dame Cathedral.

The trip marks the first international excursion for the girls since their father became president in January. They seemed to enjoy their time there.

The Obamas are in France to commemorate the 65th anniversary of D-Day, the allied invasion of Normandy in WWII that resulted in victory in Europe.

President of the United States of America Barack Obama and celebrity fashion icon / First Lady Michelle Obama made their first trip to New York City since he took office in January, enjoying dinner and a Broadway play over the weekend.

A White House press spokesperson said that the President had "promised" his wife that he would take her to a Broadway show after the election was all finished.

Between the NYC trip and getting his daughters Bo the First Dog, Barack has now made good on at least two of his major campaign promises. That's leadership!

After both parents attended eldest daughter Malia's soccer match (her team won), they boarded a C-20 plane and arrived in the Big Apple Saturday afternoon.

The pair's first stop: New York's West Village neighborhood, where they dined at Bluehill Restaurant. Fellow diner Eva Fleischer of Manhattan said she "had no idea" the Obamas would be there when she made her 5:30 p.m. reservations.

"They had to pat us down," she told reporters outside the restaurant, which is known for its "locally grown fare." As the Obamas left, Fleischer recalled, the President said to her table, "'Hi, guys!' It was very exciting and surprising."

Another diner at the restaurant, Susan Korchak of Manhattan, noted that Michelle Obama "is very tall. She's just statuesque and gorgeous."

Post-dinner, the Obamas hit the Belasco Theater on West 44th Street for a performance of Joe Turner's Come and Gone - about a group of African-Americans coming to grips with the legacy of slavery - before flying back to the White House.

Give it up, Republicans. Look to 2016.

Approval ratings for Barack Obama might drop a bit if the economy continues to tank, but the President took a step this week that ensures his popularity will remain, even in the face of rising employment rates and populist outage:

He got a puppy!

Not just any puppy, but one with "star quality," as Obama described Bo, adding: "That's a good-looking dog, let's face it."

It's also a good-looking family the President has gathered together. He, Michelle, Malia and Sasha took the First Dog out for a walk this week:

Malia says her new Portuguese water dog is "perfect." Do you agree?

Love him or hate him, there's no debating the fact that Barack Obama has stuck to his campaign promises.

The President is focused on restructuring the country's health care, while simultaneously revising the tax code to pre-George W. Bush days.

But Obama stands accused of not following through on one, canine-related promise he made to voters: to save the White House dog from a shelter.

Earlier this week, Bo (pictured) - a Portugese Water Dog - arrived from a Texas breeder. Unfortunately, not everyone is in love with this adorable puppy.

The Obamas have welcomed Bo, and controversy, into the White House.

The Obamas chose the hypoallergenic breed due to 10-year-old daughter Malia's allergies; they have also said they plan to make a donation to a local Humane Society.

However, the puppy, which was a gift from Senator Ted Kennedy, was not technically rescued from a shelter. Bo is considered a "second chance" dog because his first home didn't work out; shelter advocates say they had expected more from the President.

"Bo seems like a great dog, but we were all hoping the President would lead by example,” said Kim Saunders, co-founder of the adoption site Petfinder.com.

Did Barack Obama make the right choice for First Dog?

Breaking political news: Barack, Michelle, Sasha and Malia Obama are finally welcoming their new puppy to the White House!

The black Portuguese water dog comes from a kennel in Texas. It was sold to a family who gave it back, so will be "re-homed" to the first family.

Shrewd move by Barack Obama, choosing a rejected dog who needs a second home. Not only is it nice, but animal rights peeps will go less insane.

The six-month-old dog is named Charlie, though the Obamas will rename it.

A website, FirstDogCharlie.com, claims to have a photo of him! See below!

The alleged (and cute!) First Dog, left, and his relative Splash, right, who belongs to U.S. Senator Ted Kennedy. Portuguese Water Dogs are hypoallergenic.

Charlie will be presented to the family by U.S. Sen. Ted Kennedy, whose own Portuguese water dogs, Splash and Sunny, are from the same kennel. Sasha and Malia's new pet is actually from the same lineage as the Kennedy dogs.

The arrival of the First Pet has been a hot topic - almost as much so as Michelle Obama fashion - ever since the president promised his daughters Malia and Sasha, ages 10 and 6, that they would get a puppy if he were elected to the presidency.

After taking office, the U.S. President said they'd get a dog in the spring, as the family itself would still be getting acclimated to its new digs prior to that, and the warmer weather would make his daughters more apt to walk it.

The Portuguese Water Dog was a natural fit for the Obamas because of Malia's allergies - the breed is one of the few that are completely hypoallergenic.

According to Michelle Obama, the young girls have floated Frank and Moose as possible names for their forthcoming furry friend.

** UPDATE: The First Dog has arrived! Earlier today, a 6-month-old Portuguese Water Dog named Bo was delivered to The White House. Check out a photo of him NOW!

Since January 20, the celebrity gossip craze has been Michelle Obama fashion - what fancy designers and average brands the First Lady wears, and so on.

But what about what the President watches on TV?

Well, according to TV Guide, the Commander-in-Chief's television tastes include sports, Hannah Montana and - above all else - Vincent Chase.

HBO's Entourage is the Barack Obama's favorite show, which is appropriate, as Ari Gold was inspired by real-life agent Ari Emanuel, the brother of Obama's chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel. So how much does Obama like Entourage?

"[W]e would have these Sunday night campaign conference calls at the same time as Entourage," press secretary Robert Gibbs said.

"I remember one time I e-mailed him because the call was scheduled for the last 15 minutes of Entourage and I said, 'Just be late and we can just watch Entourage and still get on and do the call. And it worked. We got to see Entourage."

The commander-in-chief was also a fan of The Wire. Last year, he named Omar, a gay drug dealer, as his favorite character because he's "fascinating."

For more family-friendly fare, Barack Obama takes in Hannah Montana and SpongeBob SquarePants with his daughters, Malia, 10, and Sasha, 7.

Not surprisingly, the basketball aficionado can't be without his ESPN either. Obama, who correctly predicted that the University of North Carolina would win the NCAA championship in his pool, watches SportsCenter religiously.

Hey, beats the local news, right?

"He’s always asking: ‘Is that new? I haven’t seen that before.’ It’s like, Why don’t you mind your own business? Solve world hunger. Get out of my closet."

- Michelle Obama on her husband's interest in fashion

Reporters are not the only ones with a particularly keen interest in what Michelle Obama wears these days. Barack Obama, Michelle says, notices everything.

In fact, Michelle has learned not to wear a certain gray metallic belt when the president is around: "Barack calls it my Star Trek belt,” the first lady said in an interview with the New York Times this week. “He doesn’t understand fashion.”

She teasingly imitated him: “You didn’t need more shoes. The shoes you had on yesterday were fine. Why can’t you just wear that for the rest of the presidency?”

The First Lady breaks ground on the White House vegetable garden.

The First Lady of the United States said she was not naturally thin and, like most other people, Michelle Obama must exercise and watch what she eats.

“I have hips, and I have them covered up with pleats,” she said.

To keep those hips from spreading, she said, she follows an exercise regimen of light weights, calisthenics, jump-rope and a cardiovascular routine.
