The former president was spotted at Carbone with his wife Michelle and daughter Malia, who moved to Manhattan in January ahead of her new internship at The Weinstein Company.
Barack could be seen enjoying a glass of red wine and chowing down on the $49 double lamb chop at the Michelin-starred Italian joint, while Michelle opted for a bit of white wine with her meal and 18-year-old Malia was stuck with water.
There was plenty of reasons to celebrate too, approximately 60million according to one report, which claims that is the amount Barack and Michelle have secured for the global rights to their upcoming memoirs.
The money should help the Obamas, with Barack recently out of a job and Malia the only member of the family who has a job at this time.
Sasha meanwhile is still attending high school in Washington DC, which is why she could not join her parents and sister for their Manhattan dinner party.
