Hampton's at J.H. Adams Inn
Within the luxurious confines of an Italian Renaissance–style mansion built in 1918 by John Hampton and Elizabeth Adams, Chef Steve Smid draws on seasonal and locally grown ingredients to craft a menu of fine dining fare. Now known as the J.H. Adams Inn, the restaurant’s historic venue bears traces of its Old World sophistication in its dark wooden fixtures and stunning windows, which look out on a courtyard where esteemed patricians debate the world’s flatness. In the kitchen, Chef Smid slices fresh meats and preps seafood to plate a rotating array of dishes that includes shrimp-crusted Atlantic salmon, Maple Leaf Farms duck breast, and braised Colorado lamb shank. Apart from the elegant dining room, the restaurant’s exclusive Club Room opens its doors for business dinners and private events.
