The Synergy Series: Dialogue with Chef Michael Solomonov

Thursday, July 16, 2020 - 11:00am to 1:00pm

Spoon and Stable’s The Synergy Series welcomes guest chefs to share the essence of their own restaurants here in Minneapolis. Each Synergy Chef will take the stage at ASI for an intimate conversation that highlights lesser known parts of their personal and professional stories, followed by audience Q&A and book-signing. This new experience will add a valuable opportunity for members of our restaurant community and fans of each Chef to get to know our visitors in a relaxed setting. This Dialogue portion of The Synergy Series is free but space is limited. Reservations for the first Dialogue event begin March 1 at 10 a.m. Visit for more information.

He is the 2011 James Beard Award winner for “Best Chef, Mid-Atlantic”, a 2016 James Beard Award winner for “Best International Cookbook” and “Book of the Year” for his and business partner/co-author Steven Cook’s first cookbook, Zahav: A World of Israeli Cooking, and the 2017 James Beard Award's “Outstanding Chef.” In 2018, Zahav was recognized by Food & Wine Magazine as one of "The 40 Most Important Restaurants of the Past 40 Years". In May of 2019, Zahav was awarded "Outstanding Restaurant" by the James Beard Award Foundation.

In addition to his duties at Zahav, Chef Solomonov co-owns Philadelphia's Federal Donuts, Dizengoff, Abe Fisher, and Goldie.
