HAPPY HOLIDAYS 2017!

Christmas Tree inside (the former Marshall Fields now Macy's) Walnut Room, Chicago IL

The Walnut Room is the first restaurant in a department store and is the longest continuously running restaurant in the country. Opened in 1907, the room best known for its 45-foot tree during the holidays was originally known as the South Tea Room. It became known as the Walnut Room because of its circassian walnut paneling, and by 1937 the nickname stuck. A chicken pot pie dish that inspired the restaurant is still a mainstay on the menu.
