Meet Chef Mike Collins

Michael Collins serves as Executive Chef at Hotel Contessa where he is responsible for all culinary experiences in the boutique hotel from Ambler Texas Kitchen + Cocktails, to the sophisticated yet casual craft cocktail bar and robust in-room dining. Collins brings over 30 years of experience to his role at Hotel Contessa, 10 of which most recently have been spent in Texas. “During my time in Texas I’ve developed a huge love and appreciation for the preparation of food and ingredients of the region,” says Collins. “We are lucky to have so many great purveyors, ranchers, and farmers right in our backyard. The plan is to utilize their produce and protein whenever possible in the dishes we prepare at Ambler.” As Executive Chef of Ambler he will continue to pay homage to the Lone Star state through his elevated take on Texas classics.
