As a Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star restaurant, Sixteen offers stellar service in every way, and that includes wine pairings. Sommelier Rachael Lowe and the restaurant staff will be pleased to assist you with finding the right wines to complement your meal, whether you’re visiting the restaurant in the Trump International Hotel & Tower for lunch or dinner. Pairings can be made with any dish at Sixteen, but the most thrilling pairings appear with Sixteen’s five-course tasting menu and the adventurous chef's blind tasting menu. Lowe tries to pour the wine for each course and offer a bit of commentary, if she's available. When we dined at the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star restaurant, pairings included Philippe Foreau Brut, a dry sparkling Vouvray made with chenin blanc with English pea soup with lemon foam and duck sausage and a rib-eye steak paired with a 2001 Santa Lucia Brunello di Montalcino from Tuscany.
