The new Institute of Culinary Education gets cooking downtown

Look what’s brewing at Brookfield Place.

The 40-year-old Institute of Culinary Education has a new home, bringing its career training programs and recreational classes in the culinary arts, pastry and baking arts, culinary management and hospitality management to the Battery Park complex earlier this month.

The new digs are nearly double the size of its old Flatiron facility, at 74,000 square feet, and consolidates its kitchens and classrooms from six floors to one.
