Quiet chic restaurant in the Neiman Marcus store on Michigan Ave. Nice table wear, very professional service and lovely food. They have a great selection of salads and sandwiches, everything is delicious. I come to Chicago regularly and love to have an upscale lunch here with friends. It is an oasis charming and quiet in the middle of the city.

Now Mariposa but still fabulous menu, my hidden secret weapon for the Power Lunch with clients. Best to shop your way upto for cocktails and lunch when not on business.

Longstanding and well worth a stop to eat. You will love the little consomme that warms the palate before your meal and will become addicted to the delicate delights of their baked bread that arrives with, wait for it, strawberry butter. Great place to go when shopping and need a break, meeting with the girls, family or anyone at all.... More

The place is gorgeous, the food excellent and the service superb. They start by giving you the best popovers with strawberry butter and a small cup of chicken stock. Absolutely lovely. I had scallops with an asparagus risotto and my guest had the Baja salad. My dish came with four large scallops as was very hearty. Both were absolutely delicious.... More

Neiman Marcus was my very first credit card so lunch in the Zodiac Room is always a sweet nostalgic experience. The cup of broth is as comforting as a Chanel suit. Selections are always lovely, fresh and best quality if a little limited. Desserts are decadent. Champagne by the glass is always available and just feels "so right", so expected... More

First, the two photos shown at the time I write this are NOT of the Zodiac room in the Neiman-Marcus in Chicago -- maybe a different NM location, but not here. The Zodiac in Chicago has soothing tones of beige, in a sleek setting -- almost free of pillars anywhere. The number of men dining here look very comfortable in... More

I stopped here for a quick lunch alone during a business trip. The service was great - friendly and quick, but I didn't feel rushed. They had the classic Neiman's popovers (always incredible) and my French dip sandwich was also really good (particularly their French fries!). It was a refined yet unpretentious dining experience, with nice views of the city.... More

Ever since I was a little girl I have loved the Neiman Marcus café (Zodiac). The popovers are delectable. The chicken salad on tiny biscuits with fresh fruit is simply my all-time favorite Enjoy the scenery while you eat. Lastly, lady-like libations are a requirement... Mimosas anyone?

Loved sitting in the window and watching the snow come down after some serious shopping. Love the bar menu too. Worth going!

After reading the reviews, I expected more of this restaurant. Admittedly, the popover was terrific, but our food was very very slow to arrive (despite the restaurant being only half full) and, when it arrived, my salad nicoise with ahi tuna was pretty ordinary. Wouldn't be in a hurry to return.

Neighbourhood Profile
Magnificent Mile
Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent Mile. This area between Oak Avenue and the Chicago River is more a shopping paradise than a full-out neighborhood. For prime upscale shopping, this is the place to go. It’s busy, energetic, and packed with shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale. Some of the city’s most iconic buildings like the Wrigley Building, John Hancock Center and other architectural marvels define the magnificence of this neighborhood.
