When you think of American food, what dishes come to mind? Pizzas, burgers, and grilled steaks are definitely the classics in American cuisine. They feature prominently at formal and informal gatherings all across the fruited plain. Yet, we have to admit that they vary little in nature. That’s why Hardware’s fresh approach to American cuisine has made it one of the most popular new restaurants in the Romeoville area.
About Hardware Pub & Brewery
Hardware bills itself as a modern gastropub with an inventive approach to American cuisine. It sources its ingredients from local purveyors and also produces most of its own beers in-house. The company strives to keep its carbon footprint to a minimum. To that end, it grows its own produce year-round in a greenhouse. Additionally, its 1.5-acre hop farm provides one of the main ingredients for all of its beer.
The brewery also utilizes its own 250-foot well to supply all of the water for its brewing needs.
Hardware boasts a rustic and casual interior. You’ll feel like you’re in a modern farmhouse, surrounded by wood furnishings, beautiful shrubs, and geometrically-shaped decor. On nice days, you can eat on the patio flanked by the brewery’s vertical gardens.
Most of the menu items at Hardware are unique twists on American classics. For instance, sweet mustard potatoes and tomato jam grace a dinner of baby back ribs. Meanwhile, the mussels come in a red curry sauce and the pulled pork is seasoned with cilantro, red pepper, and scallions.
Another delicious choice is fish & chips, made with swordfish and served on a bed of red apples and radishes. The bison and pork burger, topped with plenty of cheddar, presents an inventive alternative to a classic beef burger.
For unique salads, try the mushroom & egg greenhouse salad, a fusion of Eastern and Western flavors. It comes with oil-cured mushrooms, eggs, fried potatoes, feta cheese, wasabina, mizuna lettuce, and a crispy garlic vinaigrette.
To accompany your meal, order a craft beer or try a whole flight of different beers. Hardware also carries more than 400 whiskeys from around the world.
