I am taking a friend and her little girl to see the Nutcracker at the Auditorium Theater at 2, and we want to go somewhere special for lunch. (unfortunately, tea at the Ritz Carleton won't work; they don't serve it before 2). Can anyone recommend a special place--it can be around Michigan Avenue or in the Loop. I'll go back to American Girl place if necessary, but I'm hoping for a place a little girl would love but that has food the adults will enjoy too. It's been ages since I've been to the Walnut Room, and I remember it as glacially slow, but any feedback on it or other suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
