We were in town for Frank Lloyd Wright's 150th birthday and focused our week on all-things-architecture. So, when we came across the Walnut Room in a book of famous Chicago buildings, we booked a table and checked it out. Well, no thanks to Macy's, the...More

Because of our wonderful experience two years ago, I took my group of 30 students and parents to the Walnut Room again. I love patronizing a place where the staff obviously enjoys their work, and that is the case here! Our servers were cheerful and...More

Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a
good starting point to sample the city's energy and
flavor. This central business district boasts
Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier
shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep
your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many
photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of
Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of

I will be in town next week and I have a teacup chihuahua that I bring with me everywhere, I carry him in a dog purse. I know Macy's says they allow dogs in the store but I was wondering if I'm allowed to bring him with me for lunch at the walnut room as long as he behaved and stays in his dog purse? Thank you, Michelle
