Jason Cichonski

Executive Chef/Owner, The Gaslight, Ela, and 1100 Social

“Chef Jason Cichonski is one of Philadelphia’s brightest rising star chefs. His artful American restaurant, Ela, is located in Queen Village. Ela’s menu changes frequently throughout the year to reflect the season’s finest ingredients and Chef Cichonski’s creative, boundary-pushing presentations. The Philadelphia Inquirer’s Craig LaBan wrote in his glowing ‘Three Bells: Excellent’ review that ‘few kitchens in town can match Ela’s food value-wise for pure excitement…from the first course to the last, the chef at Ela is hottest where it matters most,’ while Philadelphia Magazine’s Trey Popp called the restaurant ‘deliciously off-the-wall…completely worth it…a transporting peek inside this rising young chef’s head.'”
