About Michael Schulson

It is nearly impossible to stroll through Philadelphia’s Midtown Village without hearing or seeing something that has to do with Michael Schulson, one of the city’s most successful hospitality professionals.

After graduating from the Culinary Institute of America, Schulson worked in upscale restaurants such as New York’s Peacock Alley at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel and David Burke’s Park Avenue Café, and Philadelphia’s Le Bec-Fin and Susanna Foo.

Schulson managed Buddakan in NYC and Pod in Philadelphia before travelling to Japan to pursue his passion for Asian cuisine. During this time he strengthened both his culinary skills and his ability to speak conversational Japanese.

Schulson opened his first restaurant in 2008, Izakaya, a Japanese pub in Atlantic City’s Borgata Hotel & Casino. In 2014 he took on Independence Beer Garden as a project and turned it into one of Philadelphia’s most beloved outdoor spaces. Gradually, he expanded Schulson collective with Double Knot, Sampan and its adjacent Graffiti Bar, and Harp & Crown.
