This is Omni's restaurant located on the 4th floor of their property on Michigan Avenue. The ambiance is super welcoming and comfortable. They have huge throne like chairs scattered near the large windows where you can look out onto the street and the activity below.
This review is based solely on their breakfast buffet, a concept I have never eagerly embraced. After eating here twice, 676's buffet was beyond acceptable.
The restaurant has joined the bandwagon of utilizing locally sourced ingredients. (A good trend if executed properly). The display of the food itself was a bit unique. I loved the big cutting board on which brown paper wrapped rustic breads were displayed. It was cut your own slice. What followed was a topping fiesta from flavored cream cheeses and nut butters to excellent jams, nutella (homemade) and honeys. I put a dollop of numerious spreads on my bread so it almost looked like a quilt. But each bite delivered a different and happy flavor.
The bacon and sausages were top notch especially the patties of pork, blueberry and maple. It might sound odd, but it was devine. To make my breakfast even more decadent, I found some petite bread puddings with a caramel apple compote. This plus more was before I even got to the egg station.
I ordered the veggie omelet not even looking at the variety the chef had. I loved the fact that some ingredients, like mushrooms, were pre-sauteed to bring out the flavors. Boy could you tell the difference. My taste buds came alive and the cheese just sealed the deal.
Of course, there were many many more items of which I never even got a taste of...fruits, yogurt, granolas, cereals, croissants, bagels, smoothies etc. For $23 bucks, it was more than worth it. And the service was excellent.
