Depending on what menu you choose to experience at Sixteen in the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star Trump International Hotel & Tower Chicago, you may receive a little edible gift from the chef. The chef always includes an amuse bouche — a French term meaning palate pleaser — on the Chef’s Tasting menu. On a recent evening, it was Potatoes and Leeks Two Ways. We didn’t receive an amuse when they ordered from the à la carte menu at the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star Chicago restaurant, but Sixteen does offer a thoughtful present for single diners. If you’re dining solo, they’ll present an elegant printed card that gives details about the significant buildings you can see out the window. From the wall of floor-to-ceiling windows, the Chicago River and Lake Michigan are visible, along with iconic buildings such as the Wrigley Clock Tower and Tribune Tower. The well-edited card teaches you some fun facts about the buildings as you dine.
