The historic Old Salem Tavern serves a menu of traditional Moravian fare alongside contemporary and Southern comfort dishes. Before digging into dinner, guests can start with cider-braised pork belly with collard greens ($7.50) or a grilled-peach salad with candied pecans, blue cheese, and key-lime vinaigrette over mixed greens ($7.75). The cioppino serves fresh sea scallops, shrimp, cod and mussels in a spicy tomato-fennel broth alongside anchovy toast ($21), and the porcini-crusted filet of beef lounges atop a ragout of fingerling potatoes and asparagus with a port-wine reduction and gorgonzola glaze ($23.75).
Lunchers can sample traditional double-crusted Moravian chicken pie ($7.75) or the pork-schnitzel sandwich with caramelized onions, muenster cheese, and a horseradish-paprika sauce ($7.95). Hot or cold cider ($2.50) washes down hearty eats, and fresh Moravian gingerbread with house-made lemon ice cream ($5.50) makes a sweet meal finale or a sturdy material for constructing model-sized Candyland villages.

Inside, rustic wooden tables, fireplaces, wide-planked floors, complete lack of futuristic cyborgs, and servers in historical dress foster a romantic atmosphere, marrying eras past with modern dining.
