Marshall Fields…I mean, Macy’s, has been a landmark on State Street for many years. The Walnut Room–the restaurant on the 7th floor–is a holiday must-see because of it’s big, beautiful Christmas tree, holiday-themed drinks, and a fairy princess (or two) who roams the restaurant granting wishes.
Just last year was the first time I went to the Walnut Room with my long-time friends Anne, Sarah, and Sarah’s daughter, Emma. We enjoyed it so much that we went back again this year!
Hint: Go early if you don’t want a long wait to get into the restaurant. We arrived at 9:15 am on a Saturday in December and were seated immediately. After a breakfast buffet, we wandered around Macy’s, wrote a letter to Santa, found some ornaments, and purchased some of Marshall Fields’ famous Frango mints.
All in all, it was another successful visit! So good to spend time with good friends, especially during the holidays.
Merry Christmas, everyone!
