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.

Why haven't I told you about one of our favorites.

When we first moved downtown I booked this for New Year's Eve dinner before a play. I first apologized to my husband for booking a restaurant in a hotel (the Omni). What a treat. The Chef is from Michigan. He uses apples in a lot of surprising ways. When friends come to town we end up here. It is... read more

This is part of the Omni Hotel. It is both a restaurant and bar. It overlooks Michigan Ave, so a table near the window allows for enjoyable people watching. We did not have a full meal here, but rather one of their shared starters which was a margarita flatbread with basil grown on the hotel's rooftop. It was so good... More

My wife and I have been coming to Chicago for many years. As we were leaving in the elevator she said, "You know we often end up here and it's always good". OK. So to get to the restaurant you will need to go into the lobby of The Omni Hotel and take the elevator to your right to the... More

It's good stuff. Nothing pretentious, but very well done. Appealing to the eye and more importantly, the taste buds.

We only visited the bar once during our stay, but it was well worth it. The cocktail selection was outstanding and the Blueberry Collins was fantastic. They make their own infused spirits which are great. The appetizer sampler was amazing with our favorite being the smoked sausage.

We ate the breakfast buffet twice while staying at the Omni. It was delicious. The staff were so very kind and helpful. They went out of their way to make your visit a great experience. Some may consider $25 per person pricy for breakfast but you are paying for the view and the exceptional service not just your meal. Great... More

We had breakfast in this restaurant and the food was very good. I had probably the best pancakes I ever had. It was healthy and delicious. My wife was very pleased with her breakfast as well. No complaints.

676 wasn't the normal hotel restaurant. We found the food to be very good, as well as the service. The east wall is basically windows looking out over Michigan Avenue, so try to get a window seat.

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.
