WASHINGTON (AP) — Three days before they throw a state dinner for the president of France, President Barack Obama and his wife are whetting their appetite for — Mexican food.

The first couple is enjoying what could be a pre-Valentine’s Day dinner Saturday night at the Washington restaurant Oyamel. The restaurant is owned by chef Jose Andres, who is well known in foodie circles.

The president and first lady Michelle Obama will spend most of Valentine’s Day apart.

His schedule Friday is taking him to the Eastern Shore of Maryland to address House Democrats. Afterward, he heads to California to meet with King Abdullah II of Jordan.

Obama is scheduled to spend the rest of the weekend in California.

The state dinner for French President Francois Hollande is Tuesday night.
