About 676 Restaurant and Bar

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.

 (Minneapolis)·Dined 4 days ago

Restaurant smelled like a deep fryer (and so did our clothes after dining). The appetizers were good, we had the deviled eggs and bacon wrapped dates, but the mushroom risotto wasn't properly cooked and the smoked chicken was average at best.

And, although the restaurant was fairly empty, it took forever to get our check.

I was disappointed in what I would call a very limited menu for lunch. Hamburger, chicken salad....almost all sandwiches in a time when many people are avoiding carbs and gluten.
The charcuterie array we sampled was ok but uninspiring. I was expecting more creativity and more options. I can get very good hamburgers and chicken salad for much less money. Oh and they left the sugar cube out of my champagne cocktail ....one of the things I like best about a classic champagne cocktail is the increasing sweetness as you drink it

We had the cheese and charcuterie which had inventive selection and pairings with spreads which elevated the excellent quality. Would order again. The lamb was perfection! If you love perfectly seasoned and cooked lamb chops, Go Here! The restaurant side is more elegant and romantic but still comfortable while you can catch the game on TV on the bar side. We went early to catch a show afterwards and service was efficient yet non-obtrusive.

We enjoyed the avocado gazpacho, the tapas iberco ham wrapped dates stuffed with manchego, and the pork tenderloin as well as the beef short ribs. They accommodated my gluten free request and provided options for desert. I selected the deconstructed whipped cheesecake with strawberry jam (delicious) on the bottom. Service was attentive but not obtrusive. The window view was great with practically floor to ceiling windows.

We used 676 for a during dinner rehearsal for a business presentation we had to give the next day. The staff was very accommodating in putting us in a quiet spot and the service was amazing in how they kept the table clear of clutter so we could spread out our laptops and notes. Well done 676!! Thanks.

Terrific dinner for 6 people, which included a variety of cheeses and meats as appetizers and some great wines. This was a Saturday evening, and the restaurant had surprisingly few patrons. Nonetheless, we had a great meal, and we would all certainly come back.

We chose 676 for its proximity to our friends conference location. Our experience was good. The experience was above your typical overpriced, slow service hotel restaurants. The décor and seating are nice and comfy. There's an open kitchen. The menu is fairly typical at lunch (burger, sandwiches, salads) with options for carnivores and vegetarians alike. I loved the iced tea. Sounds crazy, right? But, they brought me a glass pitcher with hot tea brewing in it set over a larger pitcher of ice. Fabulous!

676 is my go-to when I want to impress out of town guests with good food and great views. The service staff goes out of their way to make things nice and special. I simply have to look at someone and they are asking what they can do. I always enjoy my experience at this classy place.

I would highly recommend 676 Restaurant and Bar to anyone looking for an afternoon or evening out in Chicago. We will definitely be back often!

This restaurant is a hidden gem in the Omni hotel on the corner of Michigan Avenue at Huron. It's a bit hard to find: Enter the restaurant through the Omni hotel entrance on Huron street and take the elevators to the fourth floor. The food is excellent, the décor is dignified and comfortable. It was quiet enough for our party of 9 to hear each other across the table. The wait staff were pleasant and attentive without hovering.

The cheese tasting (and the fruit pairing) was amazing. Great presentation and wonderful flavors all from local (and listed) sources. My wife and I had the Pan Seared Salmon and the Walleye (respectively) and we were both very pleased with the vegetable pairings and the quality of both the fish and the preparation. We paired our meal with a suggested sweet red wine and a local craft beer (again, respectively) and were extremely happy with the experience. The price is high for quantity of food, but the quality more than made up for it.
