It's quite a funny question, since 16.g3 is suboptimal. Without that move, White looks somewhat better to me.

16.g3 isn't best, but it also doesn't mean Black can just punish White right away. I would go ahead and finish developing and centralizing my pieces with something like 16...Bh3 17.Re1 c6 (This is not bad and that knight was keeping the Black queen stuck to the c7-pawn. Very annoying) 18.Nc3 Queen to e7 or f6, followed by ....Rad8.

I'm just wondering what black's plan should be in a position like this.  It's essentially equal after white's nonsense 16th, but I admit to being stumped about what to do. 

I don't particularly care for c6 leaving a weakness on d6 in exchange for scaring off the knight.  I'm not sure I see a clear way to try to exploit the white squares.  So, what would you guys do?

Cheers.
