“We are thrilled that Forbes Travel Guide has given our hotel and restaurant such extraordinary recognition, a testament to our team’s unwavering dedication to providing only the finest service and unparalleled guest experience,” said T. Colm O’Callaghan, vice president and managing director of Trump International Hotel & Tower Chicago. “As we celebrate this achievement, we are extremely thankful for the support of Mr. Donald J. Trump, Ivanka, Donald Jr. and Eric Trump, who have allowed us to attain such global recognition. We are incredibly proud and share this accolade with them and every talented team member in Chicago; they are the foundation of our success.”

“The double Five-Star rating is a great honor both for our Chicago hotel and for the entire brand,” said Donald J. Trump, chairman and president of The Trump Organization. “To have Trump Chicago follow in the footsteps of our New York flagship, and so soon after opening, speaks volumes about the relevance of the TRUMP HOTEL COLLECTION brand promise and the commitment of our hotel teams to deliver on it.

CHICAGO’S SIXTEEN RESTAURANT RECEIVES FIVE-STAR RATING FROM THE ESTEEMED FORBES TRAVEL GUIDE
Posted February 26, 2013
CHICAGO – February 26, 2013 – Executive Chef Thomas Lents of Chicago’s Sixteen restaurant is pleased to announce a Five-Star rating from the prestigious Forbes Travel Guide 2013. The dining destination has become widely known for Chef Lents’ progressive American cuisine, superlative service, and its views of Chicago’s architectural gems. Located on the 16th Floor of Trump International Hotel & Tower® Chicago, Sixteen was recognized alongside the luxury property, which also received Five-Stars for its exceptional service and world-class amenities. Trump Chicago is the only hotel in the Midwest to boast Five-Star ratings for both its hotel and restaurant and there are only three restaurants in Chicago carrying a Five-Star rating.

Having most recently served as Chef de Cuisine for Joel Robuchon, Executive Chef Thomas Lents took Sixteen’s helm in February 2012, introducing a new generation of luxury dining. Whether featuring langoustines from New Zealand and Scotland or specialty fish from the coasts of Brittany, he spares no effort in accessing the best artisanal products. His dinner menus change dramatically four times per year, each a narrative of the season and the ingredients that flourish within. From redesigning the menu, to changing his serving pieces, and even reimagining the guest dialogue, Chef Lents explores every avenue.

One can appreciate his thoughtful and often whimsical storytelling over four courses, an eight-course tasting, or Chef Lents’ 16-course “journey.” Complementing his cuisine is a robust wine program showcasing hundreds of unique varietals and desserts by Executive Pastry Chef Patrick Fahy.

“We are thrilled to be awarded Five-Stars,” said Chef Lents. “Our whole team has worked with so much passion and commitment over the past year to evolve our interpretation of fine dining, and this is a testament to their efforts. I am grateful to the talented culinary and service team members for their dedication to our work, and share this honor with them.”

Sixteen’s Five-Star rating by Forbes Travel Guides joins a list of recent distinctions earned by the restaurant, including a Michelin star rating for Sixteen in November 2012 and four-star reviews from dining critics at both Chicago magazine and the Chicago Tribune. In addition, Executive Pastry Chef Patrick Fahy was very recently named a 2013 semifinalist in the Outstanding Pastry Chef category by the James Beard Foundation Awards.

THE TERRACE AT TRUMP EXPANDS, SEASON BEGINS MAY 18, 2011
Posted April 7, 2011
Sophisticated outdoor oasis is its largest yet, featuring a Polynesian chic theme for the summer months
(CHICAGO; April 7, 2011) – Trump International Hotel & Tower® Chicago is pleased to announce that The Terrace at Trump, the downtown hotel's sophisticated outdoor dining venue, will open Wednesday, May 18, at 2:30 p.m. The chic, 16th floor outdoor oasis – which has become one of the city’s most sought-after destinations since opening in 2009 – showcases a dramatic vista of the Chicago skyline as well a picturesque view of Lake Michigan, along with the Chicago River and its famous bridges.

This season, The Terrace at Trump will grow significantly to encompass the entirety of the property’s 16th floor outdoor space. Accommodating up to 164 seated guests (60 more than in 2010), the venue will also feature a summer 2011 theme embracing a worldwide trend that has yet to make its mark on the Midwest: Polynesian chic. This theme will influence all aspects of The Terrace at Trump – from the décor and staff uniforms to the food and beverage program, expertly created by Executive Chef Frank Brunacci, Executive Pastry Chef Sarah Kosikowski, and Beverage Director Rachael Lowe.

Upon arrival, guests will be escorted to The Terrace at Trump via the Bridges Room, one of the hotel’s intimate dining spaces. Upon setting foot outdoors, they will be met with a luxurious, serene atmosphere, accented by a contemporary décor scheme that includes beautifully placed up-lighting, water elements, lush foliage, torches, and touches of bamboo weaved into the custom-designed furniture throughout the outdoor area. Comfortable lounge, booth, and table seating – designed by Alex Morales of Smartmouth Designs – will create an intimate environment to accommodate a range of party sizes. Guests will also enjoy lounge music that fuses South Pacific beats with notes of Latin and American jazz, as well as live DJ performances taking place up to twice per week.

This year, The Octagon – an eight-sided table that seats up to 10 guests with prime views – will be available for reservations. Bookings for this VIP table cost $1,800, exclusive of tax and gratuity, and include one magnum of Dom Perignon, one of The Terrace’s specialty punchbowls, one extravagant seafood platter, and dedicated attention from a personal server.

The Terrace at Trump staff will be outfitted in stylish uniforms ideal for the chic outdoor environment. Designed by Chicago designer Nicholas Joseph, the uniforms for male staff members feature blue gingham short-sleeve dress shirts with dark gray trousers, while the women don stunning V-neck dresses with a fitted bodice, pencil skirt, and subtle floral embroidery on the lapel. Jewelry designer Lauren Elan created custom-designed necklaces for female staff members, which feature hand-cut, painted wood strands, bright crystal beads, and a gold tone chain closure.

With the Chicago River in their direct sightline, guests will also appreciate a first-hand view of Chicago's summer fireworks displays from Navy Pier, taking place every Wednesday and Saturday evening from Memorial Day through Labor Day.

Chefs Brunacci and Kosikowski have developed a special menu that celebrates Chinese, Polynesian, and American fare, which will be served outdoors on The Terrace at Trump, as well as inside the Bridges Room. Designed to be shared amongst a group or enjoyed individually, some of this year’s savory offerings include:

The summer 2011 cocktail program showcases an array of exotic cocktails, aptly named Divine Nectars, as well as punchbowls that speak to a revival of communal dining and sharing.
