Helmed by renowned Chef Joel Childs, 16Eleven promises an extraordinary fusion of flavors, setting new standards in fine dining.
Upon entering 16Eleven, you are immediately transported to a world of opulence, sophistication and elegance. The ambiance in what was once a Knights of Columbus gymnasium is a harmonious blend of modern sophistication and classic charm, creating the perfect backdrop for an exceptional meal. Chef Joel, a master of his craft, created a menu that reflects his culinary creativity.
The heart of the menu boasts a selection of 30-day dry-aged steaks, a testament to the restaurant’s dedication to perfection. Each bite is tender and full of flavor only achieved through precise aging.
For those seeking the epitome of luxury, the caviar offerings tantalize the palate with their delicate textures and briny notes, elevating the dining experience to new heights.

The marriage of succulent beef, flaky pastry, and savory duxelles showcases the artistry of the kitchen. Complementing the main courses, a plethora of appetizers present an array of flavors leaving you yearning for more.
Not to be missed are the handcrafted cocktails that are a symphony of carefully balanced ingredients. Bar Manager Cameron McCaffree’s attention to detail ensures that each sip is a celebration of flavor and innovation. For wine connoisseurs, the extensive wine list offers a curated selection available by the glass and in the bottle, ensuring the perfect pairing for every course.
Save room for the grand finale – the desserts. House made and expertly crafted, these sweet delights are a fitting conclusion to an already extraordinary meal.
From velvety chocolate creations to fruit-infused delicacies, the dessert menu is a testament to the dedication to providing an all-encompassing dining experience.

16Eleven is located in the APEX Art & Culture Center, once the historic Masonic Temple, at 1611 Everett Ave. in downtown Everett. APEX is also the home of the DogTown Collection, a massive graffiti and urban art collection on canvas; and Kings Hall, Everett’s newest music and event venue. Set to open later in 2023 on APEX’s second floor is El Sid, an upscale cocktail lounge paying homage to early punk culture.
