DORAL GOES PRIME TIME: ESQUARED HOSPITALITY OPENS BLT PRIME AT NEWLY RENOVATED TRUMP NATIONAL DORAL MIAMI RESORT
Miami, FL – Trump Hotel Collection and ESquared Hospitality have joined forces to open BLT Prime at the Trump National Doral®. The iconic resort’s beautiful new signature restaurant is now open for breakfast, lunch and dinner daily, featuring BLT’s acclaimed modern American steakhouse cuisine in a striking setting boasting spectacular views of the legendary Blue Monster golf course.
Chef de Cuisine Dustin Ward and Head Chef Paul Niedermann, whose career with the BLT family began after winning Season 9 of Hell’s Kitchen in 2011, oversee the menu. The finest cuts of USDA Prime Certified Angus beef available, including the 28 day dry-aged New York strip, Kansas City bone-in strip and Porterhouse for two, are the backbone of a menu that also boasts other BLT favorites such as tuna tartare, Dover sole and lobster cobb salad. Steakhouse sides range from classic creamed spinach and truffled mashed potatoes to onion rings and hen of the woods mushrooms; desserts include a delectable peanut butter chocolate mousse as well as changing seasonal offerings. Both chefs have Florida roots, so guests can expect to see locally sourced produce and seafood dishes featured as weekly blackboard specials.
Located within the resort clubhouse lobby, with comfortable lounge seating and a dramatic circular bar, the dining room and lounge seat approximately 150 diners with seating for another 150 on the spacious veranda, and two private dining rooms seating 24 and 30 respectively. Designed by Peter Niemitz in tandem with Eric Trump, the restaurant’s interiors embrace the BLT aesthetic with clean lines, rich finishes of walnut, leather and suede blending perfectly with signature Trump elements such as intricate millwork, scrolled ceilings and natural stone surfaces. Giant floor to ceiling windows look out onto the veranda and the resort grounds beyond, with design elements like towering Corinthian columns and ornate handcrafted railings framing the golf course ambiance that is the resort’s hallmark.
