More fallout over comments
Another high-profile chef has dropped out of Donald Trump's forthcoming luxury hotel in the historic Old Post Office Pavilion in Washington, D.C., after Trump's statements about Mexican immigrants.
Geoffrey Zakarian, the chef and a partner at the Lambs Club and other Manhattan restaurants, was to open a branch of the National, his brasserie-style restaurant in Midtown, in the new hotel. But on Thursday, he said that "the recent statements surrounding Mexican immigrants by Donald Trump do not in any way align with my personal core values."
Zakarian's decision follows that of the chef José Andrés.
