I went on several tours of culinary business schools throughout NYC and ICE stood out as the most impressive in terms of facilities, faculty and alumni. It was the only school that had the complete package for everything I needed. Without the education from ICE and the contacts I met through ICE, I would not be in the restaurant world today.” — Dan Mezzalingua, Restaurant & Culinary Management, ‘15
