Michael Symon is coming to Atlantic City! The Iron Chef, TV personality and co-host of The Chew has announced that he will be opening a restaurant next fall at the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City, joining a star-studded chef lineup at the hotel — Bobby Flay, Geoffrey Zakarian, and Wolfgang Puck already have high-end restaurants at the resort destination.
Although Symon has been proud of his Sicilian roots, this will be his first-ever Italian-focused restaurant.His flagship restaurant, Lola, in Cleveland was heralded as one of the best American restaurants in the country by Gourmet magazine.
“This is the food I grew up eating — my Sicilian grandmother would be proud! Authentic Italian is very simple; it’s all about great ingredients. It's what I cooked in my early career and still what I like to make at home," said Symon. "I can’t wait to be a part of the Borgata family of restaurants and spend even more time with my fellow Iron Chefs and friends, Bobby Flay and Geoffrey Zakarian."
The currently unnamed restaurant will be opening in Fall 2016 and more details will be released as the opening date approaches.
