The Walnut Room

The world-famous Walnut Room at Macy's is the very first and longest running restaurant in a department store.

Best known for classics like Mrs. Hering's chicken pot pie, the 17,000-square-foot dining room is both elegant and comfortable and conveniently located in the heart of the Chicago theatre district. It’s a must-dine experience whether you need a break from shopping, are looking for good views while meeting friends for a glass of wine or want to dance along with must-watch performances during the popular drag brunch events launched in 2021.

Opened in 1907 as the South Tea Room, it became known among the ladies of Chicago as the Walnut Room with its beautiful Circassian walnut paneling and Austrian crystal chandeliers. By 1937 it was officially named The Walnut Room. In this spot each year, the iconic 45-foot Great Tree appears from November to early January.
