Michael Symon buys Venice loft

Iron Chef Michael Symon has a new place to cook: a two-story loft in the Dogtown Station mixed-use development in Venice.

The 1,850-square-foot town house he bought has floor-to-ceiling windows, a patio and a fireplace. The two-bedroom, two-bathroom unit was listed at $1.1 million. The sales price was not available.

Symon, 41, will be using the space as his Los Angeles residence while filming “The Next Iron Chef,” on which he is a judge, and his new show, “Food Feuds.” He is a Cleveland restaurateur and the author of “Michael Symon’s Live to Cook: Recipes and Techniques to Rock Your Kitchen.”

Dogtown Station is a gated development with 35 lofts. Symon’s transaction was negotiated by Andy McMullen of SCO Advisors and owner Bob D’Elia of RAD Ventures.
