In January 2018, ICE's Los Angeles Campus opened as the school's second location at 521 East Green Street in Pasadena, California. The ICE Los Angeles campus extends across 38,000 square feet and is situated in the heart of Southern California. 

After 42 years in New York City, the 51 expanded to add ICE Los Angeles - an urban oasis for food and restaurant lovers and without a doubt one of the most exciting food cities in America. We've reimagined our Pasadena space as a center for learning, innovation and creativity, staying true to the vision embodied by our New York flagship.
