New Dining Options at Macy’s Herald Square

New Dining Options at Macy’s Herald Square

If you’re looking to take a load off and enjoy a nice meal before or after shopping the racks at Macy’s Herald Square, you’re in luck, Rowland’s Bar & Grill is now open at the venerable department store. Named after the store’s founder, Rowland H. Macy, the new space gives a major shout out to the businessman—featuring seafood specialties such as Sea Bream and Smoked Fish Chowder, a nod to Macy’s birthplace of Nantucket; plus NYC staples that were popular when Macy made the move to the big city in the 1850s, including the House-Smoked Pastrami sandwich and Potato Latke. Other mouthwatering morsels include the cheddar-and-bacon-stuffed RH Burger with Steak Fries, sure to satisfy carnivorous cravings; plus plenty of salads, available in large and small portion sizes.

Foodies can enjoy the American gastropub fare in the warm and inviting space, which includes a long bar lit by lamplight, exposed brick walls, comfy booths and the Chef’s Counter—the perfect perch to watch the staff whip up delights from the open kitchen.

Chef Street is also a new addition to the world-famous department store. Offering a more casual dining experience, this interesting culinary concept, which rests right across from Rowland’s, features four chef-driven, fast-casual dining concepts within Airstream-style, retro-inspired trailers. What to expect? Comfort food of the burgers, brats and fries variety from Rollie’s; savory taquitos with customizable fillings from Taquitoria; ramen, gyoza and more from Tabo Noodles; and market-fresh salads and grain bowls from Crumb on Parchment. All food is made fresh to order and there’s also a “grab & go” area with fresh sandwiches, salads and pastries.

Rowland’s and Chef Street are both located in the new one below, formerly the home of the Macy’s Cellar.
