When you ask Michael Solomonov to do a Chef's Night Out, he's going to do something entirely different than anyone else. Mike and his partner Steven Cook run CookNSolo, a restaurant group that serves some of the best food in Philly: Zahav, Abe Fisher, Percy Street BBQ, Dizengoff, and Federal Donuts.

Watch one of the most epic episodes we've ever filmed as Solomonov and his friends Michael Persico and Jen Carroll eat, gamble, eat again, and then surf it all off. They achieved this by pulling an all-nighter in two different states. We start in Philly at industry favorite, Tai Lake, for steamed shrimp and clams and then drive to Atlantic City, where we eat late-night tacos and sopes, gamble at The Tropicana, and consume Philly cheesesteaks with the one and only Tony Luke, Jr. of Tony Luke's. What's the best way to rest up after all of that? Surfing, of course. Solomonov and friends hit Atlantic City's ice cold waters and then head back to Philly for early morning doughnuts and coffee. We're tired just thinking about it.
