Two months into the life of Zahav, with major reviews still pending for the groundbreaking Israeli restaurant, its star chef suddenly disappeared. Chef Michael Solomonov's culinary star had been rising and nearly $1 million had been invested in this 2008 passion project in Society Hill with partner Steven Cook. "There was no way forward that included failure for Zahav," said Cook. But then Solomonov was nowhere to be found for 10 days. Six years later, the now nationally celebrated chef is finally well enough to reveal where he went: to rehab to deal with his longtime addiction to heroin and crack cocaine.

A third Federal Donuts location is coming - this one to Sansom Row in West Philadelphia. The fried chicken and doughnut shop will open at 3428 Sansom St., a property owned by the University of Pennsylvania, in early 2014, confirmed Steven Cook, a Federal Donuts co-owner. "This super popular concept should translate well to our campus and add to the vibrancy along this historic city block," commented Anne Papageorge, vice president of Penn Facilities and Real Estate Services. Federal Donuts, a Philly favorite, already operates two locations: at 1219 S. 2nd St. and 1632 Sansom St. "We look forward to meeting the students, faculty, and staff of Penn and serving the entire University City community," Cook said.

A man who accused Roman Catholic Cardinal Joseph Bernardin of sexually abusing him in the 1970s dropped his lawsuit against the prelate yesterday, saying his memory was unreliable. Steven Cook, 34, of Philadelphia, asked U.S. District Judge S. Arthur Spiegel to drop Cardinal Bernardin as a defendant. He told the court in a filing he was no longer sure if memories that arose during hypnosis "are true and accurate. " Cardinal Bernardin said yesterday that he considered the case closed and said he would pray for Cook.

A Catholic priest named with the archbishop of Chicago in a $10 million sex assault lawsuit admitted yesterday that the 34-year-old former seminarian who has accused him of sexual abuse 17 years ago was "a friend. " But the Rev. Ellis Harsham, 51, responsible for recruiting young clerics for the Cincinnati archdiocese, denied the charges. Steven Cook, who studied for the priesthood at St. Gregory's Seminary in Cincinnati but now lives in Philadelphia, named Harsham and Cardinal Joseph Bernardin in the lawsuit filed Friday, charging the two clerics with sexually assaulting him during his teen-age years.

It was Andy Warhol, of course, who said that each of us gets 15 minutes of fame. I don't know if that is true - I suppose on some level it is, or people wouldn't have been walking around repeating it for the last 20 years - but it seems to me that before long we've got to stop and decide if we like where the idea is taking us. That is, do we really want victimization recognized as the national pastime? I know baseball is slow, but do we want to replace it without a vote? Speaking for myself, the thrill is gone.

HANOI 'LARGEST' SEARCH FOR U.S. MIAS The United States tomorrow will launch its largest search mission for Americans missing in action since the end of the war, as Washington and Hanoi continue to edge toward better relations. The operation comes as the United States is assessing the entire issue of MIAs and when and how to move ahead in lifting its 19-year trade embargo against its former enemy. Some Western diplomats and businessmen anticipate such a move will be made this year.

Steven Cook, tormented by AIDS, has come upon another torment: a memory, he says, brought out by hypnotism, he says, which revealed an act of homosexual sex nearly 20 years ago with the present Cardinal Archbishop of Chicago. The way he claims to remember it is that another priest introduced him to Cardinal Joseph Bernardin when he was Archbishop of Cincinnati and Cook, a 17- year-old seminarian who had been involved, allegedly, with a Father Ellis Harsham in homosexual activity.

For the better part of two decades, Cardinal Joseph Bernardin was the preeminent leader among the Catholic bishops of the United States. Other prelates, such as the late Cardinal John Krol of Philadelphia and Cardinal John O'Connor, who still presides over the Archdiocese of New York, wielded considerable influence inside the church. But it was Cardinal Bernardin, the subject of a one-hour documentary tomorrow on WHYY-TV (10 p.m. on Channel 12), who represented the church to American society.

Chef Michael Solomonov, who together with Steven Cook owns a group of restaurants (Zahav, Percy Street Barbecue, Federal Donuts, Abe Fisher, and Dizengoff), appeared at the Free Library of Philadelphia last week to promote his new book, Zahav: A World of Israeli Cooking . Here's an excerpt of our conversation: Can you explain the back and forth from Israel? So, I was born in a little town in Israel called G'nei Yehuda, by the airport. And my mom is American. She grew up in Ohio, which is very different than Israel.

At the end of each week, Federal Donuts - which has a menu exclusively featuring doughnuts, fried chicken, and coffee - disposes of the useless backs and bones of chickens. It amounts to about 1,000 pounds of waste a week. But in the next few months, Federal Donuts will reduce its waste, using the by-product to found a new restaurant called Rooster Soup Co. Federal Donuts and Broad Street Ministry collaborated to raise $179,380 on Kickstarter to open a restaurant, with proceeds benefiting BSM. The campaign, which closed July 26, ran for 45 days and met its goal of $150,000 about a week before the deadline.

Steven J. Cook, 36, a former drug and alcohol counselor from Germantown who leveled and later retracted sexual abuse charges against Cardinal Joseph Bernardin of Chicago, died yesterday at the University of Cincinnati Hospital of complications related to AIDS. Cook made the stunning accusations about Cardinal Bernardin in a $10 million sexual-abuse lawsuit in 1993, contending that the cardinal had molested him in the 1970s while Cook attended a Cincinnati-area seminary for high school students interested in entering the priesthood.

It all had happened so fast. He had noticed that the color of his urine was tinted orange and thought he should see a doctor. The appointment was set, and he carved time out of his 17-hour workday for it. The word from the doctors after that initial examination was not good; more tests were ordered immediately. And so, on a morning in June, Cardinal Joseph Bernardin, a prince of the Roman Catholic Church, pastoral leader to 2.3 million of the faithful here, and one of America's most prominent churchmen, was taken by car to a medical center.
