Following the Washington, D.C., premiere of her new film, In the Land of Blood and Honey
, Angelina Jolie
joined partner Brad Pitt
for a celebratory dinner at Charlie Palmer Steak.
The couple – joined by 12 others, including President Obama's senior advisor Valerie Jarrett – opted for Palmer's $35.12 prix fixe Restaurant Week menu, and started with chopped salads of romaine, endive, goat cheese, bacon, cranberry and red wine vinegar. For entrées, Pitt chose the coulotte steak with sweet potato purée and braised greens, while Jolie savored the roasted chicken breast with buttered new potatoes and marjoram jus. Pitt, who was recently injured
during a fall, indulged in the dark chocolate pavé with milk chocolate ice cream for dessert, while Jolie passed on the sweets.
According to an onlooker, the party of 14 stayed at the restaurant for two hours, and was "extremely pleasant and gracious to both fans and the staff." – Helin Jung and Sandra Sobieraj Westfall
