Dining room at Sixteen, Chicago, IL

Sixteen Restaurant Review

: Located on its namesake floor of the Trump International Hotel & Tower Chicago, this über-classy, curvaceous dining room is adorned with a massive, twinkly Swarovski-crystal chandelier, soaring ceilings and a sweeping skyline view. The food, which is as pricey as the setting is posh, is global, artsy and fanciful. We recommend taking the tasting menu plunge; after all, the splurge-worthy blind tasting shows what the kitchen can do. Halibut is served with green curry perfumed squash, cilantro and lemon grass sabayon; while veal arrives in variations of breast, sweetbreads and fleischnacka. Sweet endings might include lemon crème glace with pistachio crumbles and honey yogurt, and gianduja crémeux with roasted white chocolate powder and cocoa nib ice cream. Be sure to check out the sophisticates-only, glass-enclosed wine gallery --- it’s loaded with expense account vintages (only a few selections are accessible to mere mortals). That said, there’s an unexpected sense of whimsy to the list; depending on the time of year, rosés may be featured more prominently than whites. Afterward, do head to Rebar, the swanky mezzanine-level lounge --- or (in summer) The Terrace at Trump --- for a nightcap.
