About the restaurant
Harding's offers Manhattan's Flatiron District a selection of artisanal American cuisine and craft spirits in a chic and rustic setting. With an emphasis on fresh, local ingredients, Executive Chef Joel Zaragoza's menu celebrates seasonal American fare. Harding's also offers an extensive American beer and wine menu, as well as an array of classic cocktails handcrafted by the restaurant's expert mixologists. Exposed brick walls, antique mirrors, vintage chandeliers, and an over-sized, century-old American flag evoke an air of nostalgia in this two-level landmark building.

My wife & I haven’t been to Harding’s in a few years. Too bad for us we could have been having great meals all this time. We shared the Tuna Tartare which was delicious, my wife had the salmon & I had the Ahi Tuna salad both so good. Our server was great as was literally everyone. I know we will be coming back soon.

We came for brunch. The food very good with a nice selection. A bit on the pricey side - but what isn’t these days. The waitstaff were a little inexperienced, but very nice. We’ll return.

We had a fantastic meal on the patio at Route 66...It was a beautiful evening with incredible weather for the middle of April and as always the food, drinks and prices were exceptional especially since it was Happy Hour which is one of the best Happy Hour menus in all of Hell's Kitchen. Also, the service at Route 66 is literally second to none. They have the most friendly, attentive and amazing servers in the city. Angela was our server and she is AWESOME!!! We're already looking forward to going back for our next meal there.
