Current occupation: Owner of Philadelphia restaurant group CookNSolo

A former investment banker, Steve Cook had what most would describe as a dream job.  However, unsatisfied with his profession, at the time he followed his heart, left his desk job and enrolled in culinary school to pursue his passion. Cook graduated from The French Culinary Institute in 2000 and then founded the restaurant group CookNSolo with partner Mike Solomonov.CookNSolo’s portfolio consists of the popular Federal Donuts, Percy St. Barbecue, as well as soon to be open Abe Fisher and Dizengoff.  They are probably best known for Zahav, which serves up modern Israeli dishes and has been featured in countless publications and shows including Anthony Bourdain’s “Layover.”
