Chef Mike's ABG in Seaside Park is gearing up for their summer menu, but it's missing just one thing... your favorite dish!

Have you always had a love for cooking, but never had an outlet to show it off? Now is your opportunity to get your foot (and food) in the door of Ocean County's sexiest restaurant, Chef Mike's ABG.

Chef Mike will be accepting submissions through Wednesday, May 23rd for a special summer menu item. Our team of judges will pick our Top 5 favorite concepts and will invite the chefs behind them to come into Chef Mike's ABG to demonstrate how to cook their dish. Finally, one contestant's dish will be selected to appear on Chef Mike's ABG summer menu for 2018!

Wait, it gets better. 20% of the item's sale will go directly to A Need We Feed, a 501-C3 organization that feeds the needy throughout Ocean County.

Are you ready to make a difference in Ocean County, and have fun doing it? It's time to get started.

First, there are a few ground rules:

  • The dish should be an appetizer
  • The cost to create your dish cannot exceed $7
  • The ingredients should be accessible and easy to find in the area

Judging will be conducted by the staffs of both Chef Mike's ABG and 105.7 The Hawk, and will be based on: taste, presentation, creativity, and ease of prep.

If selected to the Final 5, participants will be asked to prepare & present their dishes at Chef Mike's ABG in Seaside Park the week of June 4th (exact date & time to be determined).

Winners will be selected for 1st through 5th place, with each finalist winning a Chef Mike's Gift Certificate:

1st- $500 GC + Premier Menu placement

2nd- $250

3rd- $100

4th- $100
