Brunch deftly bridges the abyssal divide between breakfast and lunch, a gap where less intrepid adventurers have fallen victim to Belgian waffle burgers and cinnamon French toast Gyros. Unite formerly opposed culinary forces with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of classic Southern lunch or brunch fare at The Harding House at Belle Meade Plantation. Today's Groupon is not valid on Sundays.
The Harding House at Belle Meade Plantation acquaints mouths and appetites with steaming local dishes, pairing every platter with a side of Southern hospitality and tradition. Under the same ownership as Bria Bistro Italiano and Whitfield’s Restaurant and Bar, The Harding House proffers a lunch and brunch menu replete with house spins on classic Nashville meals. Lunchgoers feast on classics just as holdable but more edible than a loved one's hand with the hand-breaded fried oyster po boy ($11), swaddled in herbed rémoulade atop a toasted baguette bed, and the fresh-ground, hand-pattied plantation burger ($8+). House specialties ($12–$17), favored by executive chef Tabor Luckey, include sautéed shrimp submerged in spiced Creole sauce and laid over a simmering bowl of cheese grits ($17). When Saturday arrives with its unique appetites in tow, The Harding House’s brunch offerings sate desires for all manners of sizzling skillets ($9–$13) and specialty breakfasts ($7–$15). The straight-shooting Enquirer skillet ($9) gathers the facts from a tomato, mushrooms, and two types of cheese before mingling them together with piping-hot eggs, home fries, and sultry pangs of hunger.
