To dine at the real White House, you must be invited by one of the special, high-ranking White House officials who has dining privileges at the Navy Mess. I was honored to be invited by a family friend last December, and was thrilled to learn that the same chefs who cater to the leader of the free world also cater to vegetarians!

As you can imagine, a power lunch in DC doesn't get any better than this. If you know someone who works at the White House, or you know someone who knows someone who knows someone, try to score an invitation. Trust me, it will be an experience that you will never forget!
