He started falling for her with her charming personality and couldn’t last the distance when he moved to another restaurant in 1994. As soon as the need of manager at his new workplace popped up, he took his chance to call upon to Liz who happily accepted the offer.
After staying close to one another for almost eight years, the duo got married on 1 November 1998 at the Pilgrim Church, in Cleveland and almost two decades hence, they own more than 20 restaurants.

Michael Symon Puts Family First
If one is to look for master balancer between work and family, then Michael Symon is the one. But how does he do it?
When asked in an interview with USA Today in Feb 2017, about the hardest part of his career, he disclosed his mantra.
Finding that balance between work and family. I've been in the restaurant or TV business essentially since I was 19. There have been a lot of 80-90 hour work weeks in those 30 years. To be a good husband to Liz, to be a good role model and father to Kyle, finding that balance. ... You are working and building something and building your dreams, but you also have to focus on what's important -- and that's family.
No wonder he is a hectically happy man.
