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, proves lovely and intriguingly thematic (former chef Thomas Lents has left the restaurant, and Nick Dostal, previously chef de cuisine, is now executive chef). It’s a set-price affair that exudes luxury --- and unabashedly so --- at a time when many fine dining establishments have scaled back. The dishes change with the seasons but may include a restrained crudo of diver scallops atop king crab, sea samphire, citrus and avocado; veal with morels, fiddlehead ferns and sea buckthorn, accented by laurel-elderflower emulsion; and, at meal’s end, caramel bavaroise and carrot cake with a poof of cardamom-cream cheese ice cream that may well bring you to tears. 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.
