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.

Many of the restaurant options around Michigan Ave are associated with hotels. I was expecting standard hotel restaurant fare, but was pleasantly surprised with the wonderful atmosphere and excellent food served at 676. The wine list is well stacked with lots of variety and the service is top notch. The fare is upscale dining and the prices match, although the... More

So, this bar is in the Omni hotel and I gave the hotel a raving review. This restaurant//bar is nice (we did not eat there), drinks are expensive, however, the prices for the same exact drink changed on a daily basis. For instance, we paid one price for a drink one night and the next night, we were charged approximately... More

We read that 676 was worth a visit, so we looked out for it while shopping on the Magnificent Mile. You access it from the side street as it is part of the Omni Hotel. When we walked in for brunch at around 12.30pm, it was pretty quiet and we had to find someone to seat us. Once this was... More

I needed a good restaurant in Chicago near the Peninsula Hotel for a business dinner for 7 on July 21. The 676 in the Omni Hotel was perfect. The setting with views above Michigan Avenue was fun and the staff was welcoming and efficient. We had the dates and Margherita pizza for appetizers, which were delicious.. I had trout for... More

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
