COMING SOON BLT PRIME AT TRUMP NATIONAL DORAL MIAMI
BLT Prime will open at Trump National Doral® Miami in February 2014 as part of the property’s extensive $250 million renovation. Visible from the lobby in the resort’s main building and offering panoramic views of the iconic Blue Monster course, the modern American steakhouse will be triple in size thanks to enhancements that expand the building’s exterior wall toward the golf course. BLT Prime will be featured as the resort’s signature restaurant.
Designed by Peter Niemitz of Boston-based Niemitz Design Group, in tandem with Eric Trump, BLT Prime will feature a dramatic circular bar at its center. The restaurant’s contemporary interiors will reflect the BLT Prime aesthetic – with clean lines and rich finishes of walnut, leather and suede – and be combined with signature Trump elements like rich and intricate millwork on the ceiling and walls, and natural stone surfaces. The interior bar and dining room will seat approximately 150. Two private dining rooms will be anchored by two striking walk-in, mirrored wine cellars.
Showcasing spectacular views of the golf courses and seating up to an additional 85 guests, an expansive veranda will merge superb dining with the iconic golf ambiance that is unique to the resort. It will be surrounded by towering Corinthian columns and feature Coquina stone balustrades and ornate handcrafted railings of wrought iron, polished brass and gold leaf.
“No steakhouse does it better than BLT,” declared Donald J. Trump, chairman and president of The Trump Organization. “The addition of BLT Prime at Trump National Doral Miami is an important milestone in our comprehensive renovation as we raise this iconic property to its place as the best golf resort in the country. It’s going to be better than ever.”
“Part of our commitment in restoring this legendary resort is to elevate the food and beverage offerings to a level that resonates with our golf club members and hotel guests,” explained Eric Trump, executive vice president of development and acquisitions. “To accommodate BLT Prime and provide an outstanding experience, we have extended the restaurant’s footprint toward the golf course to provide an experience that is up close and personal for golfers, residents, resort guests and local clientele. BLT Prime has wide appeal and is the perfect fit as Trump National Doral Miami’s fine dining restaurant. Refined but casual, it will be ideal for everything from golfer and family dinners to business lunches and special events. Two private dining rooms will be ideal for special occasions, while the veranda will bring the legendary golf courses front and center to enhance the overall dining experience.”
BLT Prime will serve the finest cuts of USDA Prime Certified Angus® beef available, including the 28-day dry-aged N.Y. Strip, Kansas City bone-in strip, and Porterhouse for two. The menu will also include BLT favorites – such as the signature popovers, tuna tartar and chopped vegetable salad starters; Dover sole entrée; creamy spinach, mashed potatoes and onion rings sides; and peanut butter chocolate mousse dessert – and seasonal selections from the local market.
