Donald Trump has talked a big game about turning the Old Post Office into “one of the great hotels in the world.” Step one? Bring in José Andrés.
D.C.’s hometown celebrity chef has signed on to open the Trump International Hotel’s signature restaurant—one of the first tenants announced. There’s no name or concept yet, but a press release calls it “fine dining.” (No surprise given Trump’s luxury ambitions.) Andrés will also oversee the food and drink menu for the lobby bar as well as the banquet menu. Trump calls Andrés a “true culinary genius” in the press release.
The restaurant will open in mid-2016 after the building undergoes a $200 million redevelopment.
