What to Eat at Terrace at Trump

All the heat-seeking scenesters (in both the social and the temperature sense) will be flocking to the just-opened Terrace at Trump this weekend, sating their hunger for sixteenth-floor views and seventeen-dollar cocktails (despite its price tag, we’re really feeling the Anchors Aweigh: Hendrick’s gin, fresh cucumber & watermelon juices, and some jaunty mint). At a media preview, Time Out Chicago described the feeling of standing on a walled ledge 200 feet in the air by noting that “you can almost reach out and touch Wrigley Tower’s clock; below that, the river peacefully unfolds into the lake.” Just don’t lean over too far, or you’ll fall and then miss out on your duck leg with crispy spring roll and carrot coulis, your lamb loin sliders on brioche with red pepper ketchup, your cuban nachos with plantains, chorizo, and manchego, or your next fancy cocktail (for max irony, may we suggest the Man Overboard?). Check out the complete selection of food and drink post-jump.
