Billy Streck's latest restaurant is almost in business. The Midtown-centric restauranteur and his wife Jenn hope to open Hampton & Hudson, their first Inman Park establishment, on Wednesday, May 25. The venture, which the Strecks are calling a "community-driven bar and restaurant," is located in the Inman Quarter development at 299 North Highland Ave.
Jason Hall, previously of Max's Wine Dive and Mason Tavern, is on board as executive chef. Hall replaces Cooper Miller, who was initially announced in the role. Details on reason for the switch in the kitchen were not made available. Hall's menu will include snacks, salads, sharable plates, and entrees, focusing on seasonal and local ingredients. A sampling of the dishes includes hot chicken biscuit sliders, steak tartare tacos, and a "Spies Like Us" burger topped with American cheese, Soviet Sauce (think Russian dressing), spicy housemade bread & butter pickles, and shredded lettuce. Hampton & Hudson's bar will offer more than 20 craft beers on draft, wine, cocktails, and iced coffee on draft.
"After almost 20 years in the bar and restaurant industry, we are so excited to be opening Hampton & Hudson in Inman Park," Jenn Streck said in a prepared statement. "We have always wanted to be a part of this incredible neighborhood and we're simply thrilled that we finally have the chance."
When it opens, Hampton & Hudson will serve lunch, dinner, and late-night Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 2:30 a.m., Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2:30 a.m., and Sunday 10 a.m. to midnight.
