No soup for you Donald Trump!

There’s at least one chef in Cleveland who wants nothing to do with The Donald when he comes to Cleveland this summer for the Republican National Convention.

It’s Chef Michael Symon, co-host of ABC’s “The Chew,” who went on the radio Thursday and declared that Trump is not welcome in his restaurants. The interview took place on Cleveland’s 92.3 The Fan.

“There’s not a chance I let him in to one of my restaurants,” said Symon, who added that he has met Trump and that the GOP presumptive nominee “freaks him out a little bit.”

Symon’s new restaurant — where Trump will be persona non grata — is Mabel’s BBQ. His other relevant eateries are Lola Bistro, Lolita, B Spot Burgers, and Bar Symon (which has a spot inside Washington Dulles International Airport),

Somehow we think Trump won’t starve when he reaches Cleveland.
