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.

Everything we ordered was delicious. The flat breads and creme brule were both tasty. My entree was the cheese plate, I chose four from the list. Each cheese comes with its own jam that is made in house. I always have a hard time finding good cheese plates in the city and I was pleasantly surprised with this dish! A... More

We went to the 676 every day on our 5 night city stay. Every morning for our coffee and to review the days plans this is where we started. Evenings for a cocktail and to enjoy the city street views while sitting in cushy chairs. We had a light dinner at the restaurant on our first night. Great service and... More

We arrived in Chicago around 7PM and took a shuttle to our hotel....the Omni Chicago. It was late by the time we checked in and unpacked so we decided to just go down to the hotel restaurant. It turned out to be an excellent choice! The menu was somewhat limited and a little expensive but...the food and service was outstanding.... More

It was a rainy afternoon and we stopped for a glass of wine to people watch down below. Maria was very engaging and welcoming, every service operation would like a team of Maria's. She asked why we were in town, next we know we have a board saying Happy Anniversary with a delightful piece of double chocolate cake. Great to... More

We enjoyed the Art of Breakfast on Mother's Day before their brunch started. I was apprehensive at first on paying 23.00, but it was well worth it. I did feel rushed though as their 65.00 per person brunch was starting. Everything was very good.

Stayed at the Omni Chicago and ate at this restaurant two mornings, one afternoon and one evening. Some of the menu items were good, but many were just fair. The wait staff, with some exceptions, were not overly friendly. The atmosphere was dark and stuffy. The margarita flatbread had an abundance of olive oil. (dripping with oil) When I mentioned...

In the morning, my wife setup a table with a cup of tea and wifi access (free to Omni Select members) to do some writing. I joined her late on one morning our stay and had an omelette, bacon, and potatoes with the buffet. The staff was very accomodating and did not try to turn the table. We ended the... More

My husband and I ate there this past week during "Restaurant week" in Chicago. It is on the 4th floor of the Omni Hotel where we stayed. The menu had some interesting choices and we especially enjoyed the first course of cheese/meat pairings with condiments. They were served on a wooden tray for us to share and there were some...

Stopped into 676 on a whim, and were happily surprised! The food was delicious (seriously, even the bread...couldn't get enough!). We ordered the salmon and braised beef and both were excellent! Great views of the street too!
