Sixteen at Trump International Hotel & Tower® Chicago Introduces “Winter Day”

Array
Sixteen – the Michelin rated restaurant at Trump International Hotel & Tower® Chicago– has   introduced a stunning new winter menu. Featuring progressive American   cuisine, Executive Chef Thomas Lents and Executive Pastry Chef Patrick Fahy   are pleased to present a “Winter’s Day.” 

Progressing through a winter’s   day, the menu takes guests on a culinary journey from daybreak to fireside   retreat. Ingredients and presentations evoke the best of the winter season:   bright citrus flavors represent the first rays of sun falling over a snowy   horizon; an iced sturgeon dish resembles a still, frozen pond; lentil pine   cep and truffled roots are reminiscent of a walk through the forrest; potato   coals signify a warming fire; and a festive, holiday feast is represented   through modern presentations of traditional dishes, including roast beef,   yorkshire pudding, and Swiss raclette.

“When creating a menu, I   approach it not as a collection of items, but as a vehicle for   storytelling,” says Chef Lents. “For winter, I wanted the dining   experience to takes guests through a day’s events by experiencing specific   moments in time and reflecting on their own memories of the season.”

Chef Lents’ consideration of the   season includes his menu presentation. The Winter’s Day menu is a beautifully   handpainted three-fold folio, whose colors – represented by a horizontal line   through the center – progress from daybreak to nightfall. The four-course   prix-fixe ($105) and eight-course tasting ($150) are presented on either   side, and in the center, the 16-course ($210) journey menu is represented by   a personally written poem. Each Captain has written his or her interpretation   of a Winter’s Day, evoking a customized experience for each guest.

Menu highlights include:

blood orange, meringue elderflower field

fennel, oyster, iced sturgeon, caviar
