2 AMES was opened in 2017 by Jeremy Hois and Danny Borg-Sundstrom. Lifelong Chautauquans, Danny and Jeremy wanted to utilize local food and both local and international drinks in a space that compliments the unique Chautauqua community.

The 1900’s Victorian house at the corner of Pratt and Ames Ave was slightly restoring and refitted to offer that space. Our design is to make patrons feel like the restaurant is an extension of their own home while additionally inspiring creativity, stimulating them both mentally and sensorially.

In addition to lunch and dinner, 2 AMES has 6 tap lines, wine varietals from around the world, and an extensive spirits list.

At 2 AMES, we want to serve nothing but the freshest local ingredients and strive to give customers a true Chautauqua experience.
