“To all the winners for Mondays’s [sic] Dishonest and Corrupt Media Awards of @realdonaldtrump I want to contribute with lunch on me in any of my restaurants as a reward,” the chef tweeted. Trump later announced his plans to push the “awards” back to Wednesday.
In short: He is very good at trolling, in addition to cooking.
It’s unclear which journalists will be named in Trump’s awards, but they will have their choice of lunches at any of Andrés’s restaurants. China Chilcano, Oyamel, Jaleo and Zaytinya, are likely to be the top choices, given the low price point for Beefsteak, his veggie lunch joint. But some journalists had their hearts set on something a little fancier, like Minibar, Andrés’s restaurant that won two Michelin stars.
Sorry, journos: Minibar isn’t open for lunch. And neither is Fish, Andrés’s pricey restaurant at the MGM National Harbor casino.
