From a press release:

“The Trump Organization and José Andrés’ ThinkFoodGroup announced today that the renowned culinary innovator will open a signature restaurant in the forthcoming Trump International Hotel, Washington, D.C., one of the newest additions to the rapidly growing Trump Hotel Collection. The to-be-named José Andrés restaurant will debut when the hotel opens in mid-2016 after a $200 million redevelopment of the historic Old Post Office by The Trump Organization.

“Everything about Trump International Hotel, Washington, D.C. – from its magnificent guest rooms and Presidential Suites, to the ballroom and spa – will be the very best, and the culinary experience is no exception,” said Donald J. Trump. “We’ve tapped one of the very best in the field, José Andrés, to create a restaurant concept that will live up to the unrivaled offerings of what will be one of the finest hotels anywhere in the world.”

Added Andrés, “I have long respected Donald Trump for his business acumen and am proud to partner with him to create a truly remarkable, fine dining restaurant in the city I have called home for many years, right in the heart of the historic Post Office.”

ThinkFoodGroup will lease and operate the flagship restaurant, prominently located off the hotel lobby in the building’s dramatic cortile, in addition to creating the food & beverage menu for the lobby bar and a signature banquet menu. Trump Hotel Collection will reinstate the 11th Street entrance on Pennsylvania Avenue, which will serve as the driveway to the hotel’s canopied grand entrance. The restaurant by José Andrés will be easily accessible from the property’s main level from the hotel’s grand entrance, Pennsylvania Avenue, and 12th Street.

“José Andrés is a true culinary genius and, of course, a local favorite, so we are thrilled to announce that he will create the flagship restaurant for the Trump International Hotel, Washington, D.C.,” said Donald Trump Jr, Executive Vice President of Development and Acquisitions for The Trump Organization.

Trump International Hotel, Washington, D.C. will feature 270 richly furnished guestrooms with lofty 16-foot ceilings, soaring windows, beautifully restored historic millwork, and glittering crystal sconces and chandeliers as well as a 5,000 square-foot super luxury spa and state-of-the-art fitness center. It will also offer 36,000 square feet of meeting and event space, including the opulent 13,000-square-foot Grand Ballroom, the largest among D.C.’s luxury hotels.”
