Weeks after opening their newest restaurant Laser Wolf, Mike Solomonov and Steve Cook found themselves immersed, like all of us, in the pandemic. This episode spans nearly 6 months. We first spoke to Chef Mike Solomonov and Steve Cook on January 28th as they were about to host friend’s and family at their newest restaurant, Laser Wolf in their expanding Philadelphia restaurant empire. And we caught up again on July 22nd, just 1 week after they reopened for outdoor dining.

In March, HRN began producing all of our 35 weekly shows from our homes all around the country. It was hard work stepping away from our little recording studio, but we know that you rely on HRN to share resources and important stories from the world of food each week. It’s been a tough year for all of us, but right now HRN is asking for your help. Every dollar that listeners give to HRN provides essential support to keep our mics on. We've got some fresh new thank you gifts available, like our limited edition bandanas.
