Kickin’ It Trump Style

I had the opportunity to attend the Trump SoHo preview party this evening – and it was quite a preview!  From the splendid views overlooking the Hudson River, to the room full of decadent desserts to the freshly carved meat, risotto and cheeses … I was wowed.

Upon check-in, I was ushered up to the third floor which is called Hudson Square with adjoining access to the private Spring Terrace:

In the Hudson Square, the chefs were serving up risotto and freshly carved prime rib:

On the other side of the third floor were some meeting spaces including the TriBeca, Trump Boardroom and the SoHo Ballroom (which can be split into SoHo One and SoHo Two) – which held the fine collection of desserts and gorgeous flower displays to showcase how these can be arranged.

I felt like a kid in a candy shop with the massive dessert table stacked with goodies ranging from tiramisu to doughnut holes filled with nutella and sprinkled with sugar to lemon curd chocolates, key lime pie tarts and even rosemary and olive oil cakes topped with mandarin oranges, reminiscent of the chef’s Northern Italian roots (also reflected in the hotel restaurant Quattro Gastronomia – to be discussed a bit later).

Following this, (I promise I didn’t sufficiently gorge myself on the desserts), I made my way up to the private rooms – deluxe rooms and one bedroom suites on the 26th floor. The 9 foot floor to ceiling windows offer amazing views of the city overlooking the Hudson and I certainly felt ready to jump in the lavish bath (stocked with toiletries from the Spa at Trump), tuck myself under the covers (Egyptian cotton!) and call this place home for a night. The furnishings are custom designed by Fendi Casa (yes, the design collection for the international luxury brand Fendi).

After touring the bedrooms, I jaunted back down to the Mezzanine level which offers The Library stocked with Taschen books (they publish art, architecture, design and photography).

I then made my way into Quattro Gastronomia, the restaurant featuring Northern Italian cuisine as I referenced earlier. I had a chance to sample some fine Italian cured meats including prosciutto, bresaola and salami, paired with some fine cheeses including Italian goat cheese, blue cheese, parmesan and even one with sheep’s milk which had quite a kick!

Well, Mr. Trump – job well done and glad there is no firing to be done tonight. (According to Hotel Chatter, the inspiration was actually Ivanka’s).

    Wow, that hotel looks amazing! And Trump sure does know how to have a party. How much do those rooms cost a night?
