Nathaniel’s Restaurant

American Fare • 1920’s Vibe


Nathaniel’s Restaurant at the Hawthorne Hotel offers a perfect start and end to any day. The morning hours are bright with the wall of windows, the plates are creative and include the well-known Seafood Benedict served over a delicious golden crab cake. In the evening, Nathaniel’s transforms into a lounge-like atmosphere, with candles, live piano and acoustic entertainment or ambient music playing from our brass gramophone. Sit beside the baby grand piano, beneath Nathaniel Hawthorne’s portrait, or in front of the historical culinary tribute cabinet and you will find there is a reason our guests have loved Nathaniel’s Restaurant for decades. Enjoy our new winter menus, beginning January 14, 2022.

Nathaniel’s Restaurant is currently serving breakfast Monday – Friday and weekend brunch. We look forward to a future return to dinner and live entertainment.
