While visiting Paris for Bastille Day, President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump dined with French President Emmanuel Macron and his wife Brigitte Macron in one of the most high-end venues the city has to offer — Le Jules Verne.

The Michelin-starred restaurant on the second floor of the Eiffel Tower is known offering two prix-fixe tasting menus — five courses for $216 a person and six courses for $262 a person — and treated the foursome to a special six-course meal, according to CBS News White House correspondent Mark Knoller.

While President Trump’s palate has been questioned in the past — he was once seen eating a bucket of KFC aboard his private jet and has a known affinity for well-done steak with ketchup — as POTUS, duty calls, and the finest in French cuisine follows.

The restaurant prepared special menus for their guests, which featured the Eiffel Tower on one side and the Statue of Liberty on the other, while the table was adorned with a stunning floral arrangement that ran across the length of it.

The night’s meal, which was prepared by legendary chef Alain Ducasse (seen in the photo below), featured a selection of pate; tomato, eggplant, and zucchini; Dover sole, spinach and Hollandaise; filet of beef, brioche with foie, souffle potato with truffle sauce; warm strawberry with yogurt sorbet; and hot chocolate souffle with chocolate ice cream.
