"I’ve been working with ICE students in New York for years and they are consistently among the best young chefs in my restaurants. I’m very much looking forward to having an institution like ICE produce the same level of talent for my LA and Las Vegas restaurants, and to what their next generation of culinary leaders will do for the west coast food scene."
