AAA has given area diners two more reasons to head downtown for dinner: Grace and Sixteen are now “five diamond” restaurants in the organization’s listings, according to Chicago Eater.
Perennial favorites Alinea, Everest, Tru and Arun's have been on the list for years, the story states. The two new restaurants will join the list in the new edition.
Grace, at 652 W. Randolph St., offers two nine-course, prix fixed meals for $185. The “flora” menu features the likes of Australian black truffle, crème caramel, sherry and chive blossoms, while the “fauna” menu includes dishes like Miyazaki beef, chanterelle, watermelon and mashua leaf.
Sixteen, in the Trump Tower, has a number of tasting menus currently highlighting autumn dishes such as porchetta of young pig, confit turnips, chestnuts and kale.
