We recently took a trip to KOVAL Distillery to not only tour the location and check out the first distillery built in Chicago since the 1800’s, but to also pick out our whiskey… Barrel #391.
Made with organic millet, this gluten-free whiskey is quite unique as KOVAL is the first distillery to make whiskey out these seeds - of course we had to buy it!
We are excited to finally announce that our shipment arrived yesterday. So swing on by and warm up with a drink from KOVAL’s Barrel #391.
What does a pasty chef create when given the following ingredients:

A Gingerbread Elevator!
Today we are working on a new dish for our winter menu with this whole roasted beef heart…
What an honor! Sixteen is nominated in the ‘Best Restaurant Service’ category of the 2013 Jean Banchet Awards. Needless to say, it has been a great year for us. With Sixteen receiving 5 Diamonds from AAA, 5 Stars from Forbes and 2 Stars from Michelin we must be doing something right. But to maintain consistency within our restaurant, the service must be perfect!
The art of great service starts with our staff and their ability to understand what great service means; putting themselves in the diner’s shoes, walk a few steps, break them in and apply genuine hospitality. Hospitality that anticipates every want and need, gives relentless attention to the guest and remembers to smile. We couldn’t be prouder of our team!
