Sixteen calls its private dining rooms "semi-private," which is a good thing if you want to party. There's plenty of privacy for you and your friends or family, but you won’t feel cut off from the buzz of the rest of the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star restaurant. You can stay indoors in the Bridges Room or River Room, or make it an alfresco affair at the popular Terrace at Trump, which is open seasonally.
Booking one of the spaces (which fit 12 to 30 people) also entitles you to the semi-private dining experience: Choose a three-, four- or five-course menu; or if you’re feeling adventurous, opt for the blind tasting menu and leave your party’s taste buds in the chef’s capable hands. For an additional cost, add a cheese course, wine pairings, truffles, hors d’oeuvres, petit fours or an intermezzo sorbet (to get that onion taste out of your mouth before dessert) to your meal. Make a reservation by calling the restaurant directly or online by visiting Trump International Hotel & Tower Chicago's website to get the party started.
