MIAMI—Trump Hotel Collection and ESquared Hospitality today announced that 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, the American steakhouse will be triple in size thanks to enhancements that expand the building’s exterior wall. 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 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 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 views of the golf courses and seating up to an additional 85 guests, a veranda will merge dining with the golf ambiance that is unique to the resort. It will be surrounded by 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.”
BLT Prime will serve the fine cuts of USDA Prime Certified Angus beef, 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 tartare, 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.
