News spread quickly Monday night when First Lady Michelle Obama and her massive security detail ventured into the sister restaurant next door to where Ryan was eating dinner. While Mrs. Obama was with one of her daughters (not sure if it’s Sasha or Malia) grabbing pizza at Pizzeria Mozza, Ryan was breaking bread with co-workers at Osteria Mozza.

“I knew it wasn’t the President because he’s got his hands full in the Gulf, but it looked like a Presidential motorcade,” said Ryan when the large convoy arrived. As TMZ first reported, Mrs. Obama’s motorcade boasted “1 CHP patrol car, 4 SUVs, and about a half dozen CHP motorcycle cops.”

“I could tell it was an unplanned stop the way [the Secret Service] bailed out of the cars and were staring at people,” said Ryan about the sudden yet welcome surprise.

This week, Mrs. Obama has been enjoying an unannounced trip to California in which she has visited Camp Pendleton and dined at Lucques in West Hollywood.
