SIXTEEN’S NEW MENU EXPLORES ITS ROOTS WITH A FOCUS ON INGREDIENTS

The Michelin Two-Star Restaurant Debuts the Year’s Guiding Theme and Newly Released Menu

CHICAGO – March 30, 2016 – With a focus on the foundation of fine dining, Executive Chef Thomas Lents and the culinary team at Sixteen are taking an in depth approach to ingredients with its new menu entitled Sixteen: A Study in Ingredients. This overarching theme – spotlighting the diverse nature and versatility of individual ingredients – will guide the menu evolution in 2016 at the Michelin Two-Star, Forbes’ Five-Star restaurant at Trump International Hotel & Tower® Chicago.

While retaining a consistent format, Chef Lents will introduce new ingredient studies throughout the year. Each will come about based on seasonality, influence and availability worldwide.

On the current menu, ingredient studies include: The Family of Lobster; The Fish and Shellfish of the Brittany Coast; The Variety of Game; A Study of Poultry; Variations of Vanilla; A Season’s Abundance of Citrus and The Bounty of the Root Cellar. Eschewing the traditional tasting menu format, guests will be asked to choose selections from each study. Their selections will serve as foundation for the dishes presented during the meal, as well as several additional gift courses chosen by Chef Lents and his team.

“Our new menu is a break from the traditional structure so prevalent in the world of fine-dining,” said Chef Lents. “We’ve made a conscious effort to make the Sixteen experience approachable and interactive for our guests. While many wish to spend their whole evening with us, there are others who wish for a more abbreviated tasting experience. This menu affords that flexbility, while still providing a robust exploration opportunity. Another benefit to streamlining our focus in this manner is that it allows us to dive deeply into the ingredients on the plate, allowing them to truly shine.”

Guests can select one or more dishes in each of the following categories:

To Begin

Sour Cherry / Smoked Foie Gras and Squab / Artichokes

Variations of Navet / Lobster Carpaccio / Rosemary Agrodolce

Citron and Pear / Cured Duck Breast / Chestnut

 

To Continue

Trofie Pasta / Tidal Fish and Shellfish / Seaweed

Liver Dumplings / Bouillon of Hen / Vegetable Sachet

Bone Marrow / Cold Water Langouste / Red Wine Sauce

 

To Follow

Black Truffle / Turbot in Brioche / Salsify and Brussels Sprouts

Cedar Roasted Squash / Fallow Venison / Tobacco

Savoy Cabbage / Breast of Hen with Foie Gras / Pied de Mouton Mushrooms

 

To Conclude

Cognac Toffee / Date Pain Perdu / Green Apple

Sesame Shortbread / Madagascar-Vanilla Cheesecake / Banana

Manjari Mousse / Variations of Orange / Pine Nut Cake

The complete four-course tasting is priced at $175 per person, with a smaller three-selection menu (choosing one dish from “To Begin”, “To Follow” and “To Conclude” categories) available for $160. Elongated and abbreivated menus, as well as a la carte menu items, are available upon request.

To complement Chef Lents’ menu, distinctive wine pairings have been selected by Sixteen’s Sommelier Parag Lalit. Calling upon his thorough understanding of culinary cultures from both the East and West, and his knowledge on their affect on contemporary cooking styles, Parag has thoughtfully arranged a selection of wines that achieve harmonious flavor balance. Wine pairings may be added for $95 for the Cru pairing, $250 for the premier pairing, and $750 for a reserve pairing.

Dinner is served at Sixteen nightly from 5:30 to 10:00 p.m. To view menus or to make reservations, please visit the restaurant online or call (312) 588-8030.
