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.

Outstanding Food, where's the crowd?

Okay, the place is in a hotel and on the fourth floor so people won't just stumble into this restaurant. It was very quiet on a Thursday evening for a dinner with family. What to expect for a restaurant in a hotel? The menu is not expansive, chicken, pork, beef, et al... The surprise was the... read more

My wife and I had lunch and breakfast here while staying at the Omni hotel. This restaurant is superb. Beautiful decor, great windows and views, high ceiling, wonderful service, and great food. The $21 per person breakfast buffet is unbelievable. It was lavish, sumptuous, and perhaps the best I ever had. Your eggs are made to order in iron skillets... More

What we didn't like was that the menu on Saturday evening was much more limited and more expensive than Friday evening.

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

Staying in Magnificent Mile

Neighborhood Profile
Magnificent Mile
Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent Mile. This area between Oak Avenue and the Chicago River is more a shopping paradise than a full-out neighborhood. For prime upscale shopping, this is the place to go. It’s busy, energetic, and packed with shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale. Some of the city’s most iconic buildings like the Wrigley Building, John Hancock Center and other architectural marvels define the magnificence of this neighborhood.
