A year after his arrival, he received a glowing “Three Bells: Excellent” review from Inquirer critic Craig LaBan who noted the re-review for the five-year-old restaurant came because “current chef Eli Collins’ cooking demanded [his] attention.” Four years later, Collins joined the High Street Hospitality family and assumed the role of Executive Chef of + bar within AKA Rittenhouse Square. Collins quickly earned another “Three Bells” the Inquirer for his “compelling French flair” and a menu “driven by seasonality and a love of prime ingredients.” has been named one of Wine Enthusiast’s Top 100 Wine Restaurants in America, was awarded Wine Spectator’s “Award of Excellence” in 2020 and has received praise from Philadelphia Magazine, Eater, Thrillist, and Philadelphia Style Magazine, among others.
