At Sixteen, guests can appreciate Chef Lents’ thoughtful and often whimsical storytelling through multicourse tasting menus that introduce a completely new selection, theme, and approach each season. Complementing his cuisine are exceptional dessert creations by Executive Pastry Chef Patrick Fahy and a robust wine program showcasing hundreds of unique varietals led by Restaurant Director and sommelier Dan Pilkey.


“We are thrilled to be awarded Five Diamonds and to join this list of illustrious dining destinations,” said Chef Lents. “Our whole team has worked with so much passion and commitment over the past year to evolve our interpretation of fine dining, and this is a testament to their efforts. I am grateful to the talented culinary and service team members for their dedication to our work, and share this honor with them.”
