DJT Restaurant Review

: All that glitters is indeed sometimes gold, especially when it's within the gleaming exterior of the Trump International Hotel & Tower. At DJT, the restaurant housed in the tower bearing the initials of its owner, Donald Trump, gold makes a small statement in the details of even the table settings, with gold glass candle holders and bread plates set amongst Spiegelau stemware and shining Hepp Exclusiv flatware. Semi-private, curtained booths surrounding the main dining room feature individual crystal chandeliers. The kitchen’s take on contemporary American cuisine keeps a keen eye towards modern technique, but stays firmly rooted in classic dishes (chef Sydney L. Jones is at the stoves). Favorites include a starter of chilled English pea soup with garlic crème fraîche, wasabi pea dust and local lavender flowers; and confit pork belly with fava beans, crispy polenta and pork skin. Among signature steaks are filet mignon and bone-in rib-eye. For dessert, don't miss the "Hacienda Conception" chocolate tart, accented with vanilla cream and cherries. The wine program, which emphasizes boutique offerings, is outstanding, but the fun list of rare, grown-up sodas is a nice change of pace when it comes to pairings. Front-of-the-house staff is capable and knowledgeable.
