Kutsher worked in corporate law but he could not resist the call of the restaurant business. Working with entrepreneur Alan Wilzig, branding guru Richard Kirshenbaum and restaurateur Jeffrey Chodorow, Kutsher is bringing the spirit, fun, and hospitality of Kutsher’s Country Club to Manhattan in the form of Kutsher’s Tribeca, a modern Jewish American bistro. The restaurant has been featured in The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, New York, Travel + Leisure, The New Yorker, and more. Looking back on his time at ICE, he says, “ICE provided me with a very well-rounded education on all facets of the industry.” His advice for culinary students is “Follow your heart and there is always a way.”
