Description: 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.

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 this to the waiter, he said it was due to the pesto. He did not offer to replace it.

If possible, I would recommend that those who are staying at the Omni choose another dining option.

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 night with drinks with my sisters and selected from the wine menu (waitress very knowledgeable on the selection) and the craft beers (mostly bottles with local and regional selections). The mixed drinks were so-so with a very sting blood orange whiskey sour that was sent back and adjusted with some sour mix that didn't work, but the servers replaced without any issue. If you are staying in the Omni, 626 provides a great bar and breakfast option.

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 surprising combinations. Everything was tasty and well-prepared. The service was excellent. I had lamb and my husband had steak. Both were perfectly cooked. The desserts were both delicious. It was $44 per person for a four course meal.

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!

We took our 3 grandchildren with another couple (who had 2 of their grandchildren with them) to Chicago over their Christmas break. Stayed at the Omni on Michigan Avenue, making reservations there at 676 for New Years Eve for the 9 of us. It was a great experience, the staff were very accommodating and great with 5 very excited young ones (ages 8 to 3). Food was very good, great view of Michigan Avenue with Christmas lights. I'd recommend this place!
