676 Restaurant and Bar
Top 2 restaurants everThe breakfast at 676 is absolutely delish. Everything is home made and fresh - down to the breads and the jams. . .heck the honey comes from a beehive on their roof. They believe you should know where your food comes from and if it's not made in house, then they make note of where it was sourced and it's all local. They truly take care of kids, serving every meal in a bento box with yogurt, a granola bar, veggie sticks and the entree - the drinks come in a sippy cup that is hard plastic that you will want to take home with you. Again, just very well thought out. . .every detail.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMWe loved it! Great food--beautifullWe loved it!

Great place!6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMWhile visiting Chicago onWhile visiting Chicago on busisess we took clients for dinner at 676. I don't normally choose a place I've never been but was intrigued by the menu concept. We were not disappointed. The food was fresh, flavorfull, and executed well. Chef Philip came out to make suggestions to members of our dining party, and did not steer us wrong. After a delicious meal, Chef Philip was then kind enough to give our group a tour of the kitchen where the magic happens. He was proud to show us his charcuterie fridge where they make their own, and other kitchen specialties like the homemade preserves. I definately need to return to try some of those. You can't go wrong dining here.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellentGreat food and wine. Shrimp flatbread exceptional.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently excellentThis is the second time I've dined here.

I recommend trying the flatbread pizza and the kale salad!5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMBrunchWe were looking for a place for brunch, 676 Restaurant had a good looking menu so we gave it a try. The food and service were great, I had the PB & J waffle panini which was as amazing at it sounds. We also got a few cheeses from their selection, they all came paired with a spread (the bacon jam with the aged cheddar was a perfect match).5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat findI usually shy away from hotel restaurants but this one was a great find

I made reservations for 10 on thisbusy day for the special brunch. At the last minute we had an unexpected addition of 4 people to our group. I contacted the manager (matt?) a couple hours ahead of time and even though they were sold out for weeks, he was able to fit the additional people in. The food selectiona dn preparation was out of this world! We are still talking about it as being one of the best we have ever had.
Hats off to all of you!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBrunchWe went for Mother's day brunch and really enjoyed the setting as well as the food.

The minute we entered the lobby, a friendly face greeted us. WE sat at the bar as we arrived a bit early for our table. Dave who greeted us invited to sit and the bar and we did. Very friendly server at the bar too as she related so well with us. Time flew by as we enjoyed the entire atmosphere. We were shown our table and had a fantastic time. Jorge was very knowledgeable on the menu and his suggestions were 'spot on.! Again, we had a fantastic view over the Mag Mile and it was ever so tranquil. Thank you guys/girls! I will be more than happy to return and certainly recommend Restaurant 676 to family and friends!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellentThere were four of us for lunch, and everything went well.

All of the food was unique and delicious.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMEvery thing was outstandingEvery thing was outstanding with respect to food and service. My wife, who is quite short, found the elevated swivel chairs somewhat uncomfortable because she couldn't reach the footrest easily. But we liked very much the spaciousness that made us feel we were dining almost by outselves (a group of 5).4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent brunch. I especiallyExcellent brunch. I especially appreciated the availability of some gluten-free baked goods. Great omelet (can do egg whites if you prefer). Lots of good cheeses and meats, classy yogurt and very fine fruit. And more. For $20 it was a great deal. We asked for and got a table by the windows. Great pre-play event.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMNever disappoints!I've given reviews for 676 Bar & Restaurant before, so let me just repeat myself. Fabulous, wonderful. . . they never,ever disappoint! Changing the menu seasonally is a delight, and my husband & I always look forward to being pleasantly surprised as to what the chef will think of next!! Tonight I started with the Grilled Pear salad. Delicious (I may say that word a few more times!)!! Loved the light grill flavor on the poached pear, and the honey yogurt dressing was a perfect accompaniment. Lamb chops were out of this world and my husband thuroughly enjoyed the tender ribeye with Goose Island IPA mac & cheese. Delicious and not so filling. I don't know why we didn't order dessert!!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AM676 is GREAT!!The food was so good and the service was great!! Such a beautiful view!!
