LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Former first lady Michelle Obama was spotted with her daughters, Malia and Sasha, at Los Angeles’ new favorite restaurant. The trio reportedly enjoyed dinner on Thursday, March 10, at Mother Wolf, a Roman-inspired restaurant which has apparently become the new preferred outing hub of Hollywood celebrities.

Michelle and the two young women were accompanied by Secret Service agents as they discreetly left a private room at chef Evan Funke’s restaurant, widely known for its handmade pastas, thin-crust pizzas, and other specialties. The place was opened in January and has since hosted a number of big names like Beyoncé and her husband Jay Z, Chrissy Teigen, Kanye West, Rihanna  among others.

For Thursday's outing, the Obama girls were seen flaunting their personal styles as the 23-year-old Malia rocked a new hair color while the younger one Sasha, 20, looked quite similar to her mother. Malia wore a cropped white cardigan and a matching cutaway tank, pairing them with faded black cropped jeans for the girls' night out. She completed her look with black platform Chelsea boots and a white leather shoulder bag, while Sasha chose a long light brown leather coat over a breezy white top and light bootcut jeans. To finish her look, she donned a pair of stacked-heel sandals, a lime green bag, and some pieces of jewelry.

As per reports, the younger daughter of the Obamas has recently shifted to Los Angeles and is apparently a student at the University of Southern California. Her elder sister is believed to have gotten a position on the writing staff of Donald Glover's new Amazon project. It’s not clear how long Michelle is in Los Angeles but it seems she is making most of her time in the city with her girls.

Meanwhile, about the Roman-inspired Mother Wolf’s owner, Funke, the Daily Mail has said that he is an acclaimed chef. Felix Trattoria is his first restaurant in LA’s Venice, which opened in 2017. Its website notes that he’s “a culinary storyteller, a custodian of Italian tradition and a master of the old world techniques of handmade pasta. Funke’s singular passion as a pasta maker and chef was solidified in Bologna, under the mentorship of Alessandra Spisni at La Vecchia Scuola Bolognese.”

It adds, “Venice Evan brings nearly two decades of excellence to Gusto 54 in their first international venture on Abbot Kinney in Venice, California. Felix Trattoria embodies a philosophy of seasonality, warm hospitality and the deeply rooted culinary traditions of regional Italy.”

Reportedly, Mother Wolf is the chef’s second venture in the city, and is “an homage to Roman cuisine with dishes that are 'loosely inspired by the region’s shepherds, artisans, and the legend of twin brothers Romulus and Remus, who were said to have been nursed by a wolf and grew to be founders of the Eternal City.’” The restaurant’s menu “rotates seasonally and features a melding of California produce and ingredients imported from Italy, such as the buffalo ricotta in the restaurant's stuffed squash blossoms,” the Daily Mail reported.
