If you were hoping to try BLT Prime‘s famous hanging bacon this week (or, let’s be real, scope out the influx of Trump fans), you’re out of luck. The steakhouse inside the Trump International Hotel is only accepting reservations from hotel guests through the inauguration.
Yesterday, Politico reporter Daniel Lippman was turned away from a previously scheduled breakfast meeting at the hotel when he identified himself as a journalist. “Media is not allowed in this week in respect of the privacy of our guests,” Patricia Tang, the hotel’s director of sales and marketing, told him in an email.
One person who did make it in: Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, who was spotted in the hotel yesterday.
Also, of course, Trump himself. Instagram posts show him dining on the mezzanine of BLT Prime last night:
