Nancy Pochis Bank Art Studio has spent the last few weeks designing and executing five chalk boards for the
Omni Hotel’s amazing new restaurant and bar, 676. This farm-to-table restaurant describes their menu as “approachable, organic and sustainable – local food treated the way it was intended.”
A special thanks to artists
Amanda Paulson and Poppy Golland for their excellent work on this huge project as well as to Elizabeth Ahlem and Amanda Paulson for assisting with the design work.
This is the main welcome board, which describes some of the unique features of 676, and a bit of their philosophy.
This is the left bar board, which highlights their wine and cheese selections. It will be updated seasonally with featured wines seasonally.
This is the center bar board, which promotestheir craft beers and chef-inspired mixed drinks.
This board is in the dining room, showing their Charcuterie Cooler. 676 is one of the only restaurants in Chicago to cure their own meats.
This board is also in the dining room, highlighting 676’s relationships with local farmers throughout the midwest.
