The stately dining room on the 16th floor of the Trump Tower is indeed impressive, but the close-up view of architectural gems like the Wrigley Building and Tribune Tower and the supremely polished, doting staff come with a price. With a distinguished executive chef, Thomas Lents, meals are presented as seasonal stories, such as a “Winter’s Day” that included a “white storm” of sablefish with daikon sake seaweed and a “retiring fireside” of potato coals, raclette and onion brûlée. For those looking to impress a client or a date with a fine-dining experience, this spot is for you.
