ATLANTIC CITY, N.J.— Celebrity chef Michael Symon, co-host of ABC’s “The Chew” TV show, will open an Italian restaurant at Atlantic City’s Borgata casino next fall.
Symon joins fellow Iron Chefs Bobby Flay and Geoffrey Zakarian, and legendary chef Wolfgang Puck among celebrity chefs with eateries at the casino.
Symon made his TV debut on the Food Network in 1998 with appearances on “Sara’s Secrets” with Sara Moulton; “Ready, Set, Cook,” and “Food Nation with Bobby Flay,” before hosting over 100 episodes of “The Melting Pot.”
In January 2012, his show “Symon’s Suppers,” premiered on the Cooking Channel, and in September 2011 he joined the cast of “The Chew” as one of the show’s five hosts.
Symon already owns several restaurants in Northeast Ohio, including Lola and Lolita. His new venture on East Fourth Street in downtown Cleveland is set to open next year.
