Profile

From the 117-year-old American flag on display to Civil War bullets embedded in the walls, Harding's is rooted in traditional patriotism, offering a historically inspired menu that rises above the gimmick. An elevated group table overlooks the open dining room, and a bumping singles scene settles in on the weekend (the bar is even stocked with U.S. liquors and brews). While some touches of hometown pride seem superfluous—unused candlestick holders on each table, poorly papier-mâché pages of Burr McIntosh Monthly on bathroom walls—others, like framed newspapers and an antique chandelier, create an inviting aesthetic. Entrees like braised short ribs, which utilize creamy, pureed potatoes as a sauce, make the most of our nation’s steak-and-potatoes culinary history. There's no George Washington–inspired apple pie, thankfully, but the Griddle Cake, topped with moonshine ice cream, raw maple syrup, and zested lemon is a treat only a sugar-crazed genius could dream up.

Recommended Dishes

Warm octopus & potato salad, $14; shortribs, $29; griddle cake, $10
