José Andrés

D.C. staple José Andrés has a curious new partnership — with Donald Trump, reports The Washington Post. Trump and daughter Ivanka are developing Trump International Hotel, Washington, D.C., a luxury hotel at the Old Post Office building, and have often said that they'd bring in a big chef into the mix. Enter one of D.C.'s most loved chefs.

There's no clear concept just yet, but Andrés will be formulating the menu. The 270-room hotel is slated to open mid-2016, with the restaurant located off the lobby.
