About Us & What to expect

2 Ames is a fast paced, seasonal farm-to-table restaurant and bar located in Chautauqua Institution. We are seeking ambitious and hard-working staff to help us during the upcoming season.  Due to the seasonal summer-destination aspect of Chautauqua, the population increases from a few hundred to a few thousand overnight. We are looking for candidates eager to rise to the challenge with us.

Opened in early 2017, 2 Ames is situated in a 1900ā€™s Victorian home in the heart of historic and cultural Chautauqua Institution.  Our mission is to build a restaurant that enriches the community with artistic meals made from scratch using the highest quality ingredients. WE strive to create an environment that feels like an extension of our patron'sā€™ homes, while inspiring creativity for a mentally and sensorially stimulating dining experience.
