We study Harish-Chandra representations of the Yangian $\mathrm {Y}(\mathfrak {gl}_2)$ with respect to a natural maximal commutative subalgebra. We prove an analogue of the Kostant theorem showing that the restricted Yangian $\mathrm {Y}_p(\mathfrak {gl}_2)$ is a free module over the corresponding subalgebra $\Gamma$ and show that every character of $\Gamma$ defines a finite number of irreducible Harish-Chandra modules over $\mathrm {Y}_p(\mathfrak {gl}_2)$. We study the categories of generic Harish-Chandra modules, describe their simple modules and indecomposable modules in tame blocks.
