Combining the best elements of a cocktail party, a cooking class and your favorite restaurant, ICE cooking parties and group cooking events are an easy, seamless choice when you want to celebrate or entertain. 

ICE's exclusive events are educational, flavorful and fun!

Elvis Duran and his iHeart Radio team make sushi at ICE.A typical event is approximately 3.5 hours and begins with a 30- to 45-minute reception featuring passed hors d’oeuvres or a tasting table. After your guests enjoy some light bites with a drink from the bar, our highly trained chefs will invite your group to put on aprons and hats for the cooking portion of the event. We'll put your guests to work while they learn skills, tips and techniques in a fun, interactive environment. The memorable and delectable activities culminate in an hour-long private dining experience. ICE's signature hospitality will leave your guests with a lasting impression — we’ll even do the dishes!
