The Wine Bar at The Walnut Room

The wine bar added to the decades-old Walnut Room in 2007 is really just a corner of the dining area, and it’s only open when the restaurant is (read: to align with ladies who lunch, not ladies who Red Bull and vodka). But it’s a nice spot for a midday or after-work drink, full of the restaurant’s characteristic dark wood and formal-yet-friendly service. Nicer still is the wine list, which has a staggering number of bottles under $30.

If you go to the walnut room...which normally I avoid like the plague...this is the place to go. Mediocre wine, mediocre service, food is a pass, alas, you can get a view of the tree around Christmas and you are definitely away from most of the screaming, snotty children.

Never heard of anyone eating brunch here, but it was such a great experience. I love the old, classic furniture and a beautiful fountain welcomes you in the lobby area. The food and service was great! I'd consider going back to host an event in this location.
