Been to Sixteen yet?  Have you checked out Rebar?  Well if you haven’t, you may want to check these two new hot spots out this weekend.  Sixteen is the new fine dining restaurant in the Trump International Hotel & Tower.  Located on the 16th floor, Sixteen touts itself as ” a world class dining desitination”.  I’ve had the pleasure of getting an inside look at this restaurant and was impressed with Executive Chef Frank Brunacci’s daily changing menu, the vibe and service that they provided.

Phillip Posch, Director of Food and Beverage says that they are attempting to avoid a pretentious atmosphere, but want to attract a hip down to earth crowd.  They want diners to feel luxurious but “with a sense of modernity and dynamism”.  The modern American cuisine has been getting good reviews and the views are spectacular.  Upon completion, the Trump International Hotel & Tower will be the second largest building in Chicago.  Guests will be able to enjoy panoramic views of Chicago’s famous skyline, the Chicago River and Lake Michigan.

Rebar is Trump’s hip new lounge on the Mezzanine level of the hotel.  Managed by Michael Frank, Rebar offers a vibrant, social atmosphere with picturesque views.  This lounge has been getting a lot of buzz, since more and more Chicagoans discovered the new hot spot.  Just like other lounge concepts in the city, Rebar boasts bottle service for those that want to reserve a table with friends.  They also have creative drink concepts which include a punch bowl concoction that goes for $215.  Be ready to share that with friends.  Check out Sixteen on our Fete Select TV segment below or log onto www.efete.net to view our other Fete Select TV featured hot spots.
