Description: 676 Restaurant & Bar will be closed for renovation beginning 1/7/13 and will re-open 1/28/13. During this time we will provide our services in the Picasso Ballroom located on the fourth floor of the Omni Chicago Hotel. We look forward to seeing you soon. 676 Restaurant focuses on using ingredients from Midwest and local farmers whenever possible. The fare is approachable, organic and sustainable - local food treated the way it was intended.Chef accentuates the food selection with an ever changing selection of hand-made house charcuterie, honey from his own hive, produce from rooftop gardens located on the sundeck at the Omni Chicago Hotel and pork from the exclusive Acorn Edition IV pig out of Norwalk, Iowa. Chef and his culinary team’s dishes will bring back memories of fishing from the dock for bluegill, hunting game in the north woods, summers spent picking apples from the orchard trees hoping not to get caught and standing in awe at the plethora of jarred food under grandma’s basement stairs. That is the Midwest. That is 676. With unparalleled views of Chicago’s famous Magnificent Mile, this unique restaurant experience is augmented with rustic touches, communal plates and a bit of nostalgia of the foods you remember as a kid.

The ny strip was delicious as were the Yukon gold potatoes. The chocolate tart had a great flavor but was more a bar than tart. The service was friendly and prompt.

We had breakfast and lunch and the wait staff was just great. Vegan options are readily available! The breakfast buffet is reasonably priced for a big city. Lunch is casual and quite good.

We went here on Dec 23 with a group that included a vegetarian, a vegan, a Celiac (meaning gluten free), and 4 other 'normal diet' people including myself. They were able to accommodate all the special diet needs (which were related to food allergies), and everyone was happy. They source their food from local farms, and I have to say,... More

Its a hidden gem inside the Omni Hotel on the fourth floor overlooking michigan ave. There are no signs to tell you where it is. The menu is small plates to meals and we had some cocktails and appetizers. Our cheese flight was amazing and so was the flat bread. Its nice to sit in plush chairs to take a... More

OMG! The best hamburger we've ever had. Cooked to perfection, super large and tasty. The fries are fantastic, home made fresh with seasoning salt. We ate in the bar, service was great. Victor and Maria plus the other ladies were fantastic. Great job to all. We will return.

One of the best meals we had in Chicago out of 6 restaurants. Pricy but worth it. A variety of dried meats (chacuterie) served in Tapas fashion. Cheeses as well. Every thing is locally sourced. All meats cured in house! Breads from scratch as well. Butter made in house! Lovely hot pepper flavored popcorn served as bar food. Also made... More

Stayed at the Omni for the weekend and as usual the Sunday breakfast was the best food, service, and special treatment. Sit by the window overlooking Michigan Avenue if you can. Our grandkids took their AG dolls to the table with them, and the hostess provided special minature chairs for the dolls to sit in! The farm fresh food and... More

The limited menu offers local farm to table food. our server the first evening was very attentive and friendly. However, after telling the hostess we were celebrating an anniversary and would like a romantic view, she sat us next to a large table with 2 families which included 4 very loud, noisy, running around the table, standing on the ledge...

The food was fantastic! Very delicious, well presented. Little pricey, even for Chicago, but if want to splurge, good place to do it!

We found this restaurant on 'Open Table' the night before. It had great reviews there. Two things I can't understand... 1. Why the mixed reviews 2. I'm not sure why the place wasn't jam- packed on a Friday night. Yes- the menu is small but the quality and freshness of the food is outstanding. I could smell the freshness of... More
