NAPLES — Mercato, a mixed-use lifestyle shopping center in Naples, has welcomed the addition of the Hampton Social, a new 8,400-square-foot restaurant that will be located next to Blue Martini, in the former McCormick & Schmick’s space. The restaurant is expected to open in the summer, according to a press release.

The Hampton Social is a Chicago-area sensation born in the Windy City’s River North neighborhood, known for its concentration of art galleries and vibrant nightlife. The restaurant serves seasonally inspired coastal cuisine in a posh, East Coast “Hamptons-like” lifestyle atmosphere. A tasteful private dining room and elegant semi-private spaces make the venue popular for both intimate and corporate gatherings, the release states.

“Mercato is honored to have been chosen as The Hampton Social’s first East Coast location,” states Mercato marketing director Valerie Cope in the release. “The restaurant’s sophisticated, fashionable atmosphere is a perfect match for Mercato’s visitors and a welcome addition to our tenant mix.”

Decorated with off-white Adirondack chairs and hammocks and warmly lit by a combination of sparkling chandeliers and rustic lanterns, the Hampton Social’s menu includes a diverse selection of seafood offerings and a raw bar as well as favorites like chicken and donuts, the ever-popular lobster roll and a selection of pizzas.
