In case you didn’t guess, Sixteen is located on the 16th floor. I guess the name is their way of reminding you what great views you will have from the restaurant. I mean, look at the Wrigley building and Tribune tower as seen from our table. The entire restaurant is open on one side with huge windows. There is also a terrace that I want to come back to when the weather warms up.
We had two meals at Sixteen: a very light lunch and breakfast the morning we were leaving. That is the lunch menu above (click here for a bigger view) and the gorgeous chandelier in the restaurant. I never did get to see what it looked like at night, but I bet it was beautiful.
I’ll start with our lunch. I had the pumpkin soup (above) and it was delicious. I loved the pepitas on the top; gave it a nice little crunch. My husband had the salmon tartar (below), which was equally yummy.
We went pretty basic with breakfast. Honestly, I had eaten so much over the weekend, I just didn’t feel like I could do something rich or heavy. I had the eggs (over hard) with bacon and potatoes and my husband had oatmeal with a side of bacon. I liked the presentation of the oatmeal with the syrup, brown sugar and fruit (which I stole).
Both times we visited Sixteen was a positive experience and that was due, not only to the food, but also to the great service. They were so friendly and prompt. We were very pleased. I would love to go back and eat at Sixteen for dinner.
As I was writing this post and typing the name of the restaurant over and over, I got to thinking. If I had a restaurant, what would I name it? Sixteen isn’t the most creative name in the world. What would you name it?
