BLT Out at Trump Soho

Well, we guess there won't be a BLT restaurant in Trump Soho after all. Such is the gist of a press release that just went out from BLT's representative, Bullfrog & Baum, which includes this telling quote: “BLT Restaurants are recognized for a particular style of food and service which ended up not being what the Trump Organization was interested in,” says Jimmy Haber, managing partner of BLT Restaurant Group. Did Trump want something cheaper or more casual than what BLT was ready to do? Or does this perhaps have to do with the rumor we've been hearing about a hip, young downtown chef being looked at for the space? Perhaps there was more to the rumor than we thought.
