Subject: WH Travel Pool #5 - Dinner in Waikiki

POTUS and FLOTUS are dining with friends and family at Morimoto Restaurant Waikiki, a restaurant in the heart of the beachside strip. 

Motorcade arrived at 8:43pm after uneventful ride, occasionally slowed in the downtown traffic.

Per website the restaurant is owned by Chef Masaharu Morimoto, of Iron Chef and Iron Chef America fame, "known for "his seamless integration of Western and Japanese ingredients."

Pool dining at a more downscale spot nearby. Still haven't spotted POTUS.
