There will be no reservation necessary for a meal between Anthony Bourdain and President Trump — the chef says he’s uninterested in breaking bread with the commander-in-chief.

“I can’t see the point,” Bourdain told the New York Daily News in a Thursday story, when asked if he’d chow down with Trump.

But Bourdain expressed little interest in feasting with the new president.

“He only talks about himself and he’s only interested in himself,” Bourdain, 60, said of Trump.

“I can’t see that as being scintillating dinner conversation. Plus he eats his steaks well done. I think that really settles it,” Bourdain added.

Trump, known to favor a meat-and-potatoes and fast food-heavy diet, is partial to thoroughly cooked steaks.

“It would rock on the plate, it was so well done,” Trump’s longtime butler told The New York Times last year of the real estate mogul’s meat preference.
