2014 Eat@ICC

2014 Eat@ICC

Food carts, pop-ups, and some of the country's hottest chefs. Eat@ICC is back! This year we're showcasing some of the best spins on Southern food, sandwiches, and staples from Rhode Island and New York. Steelite International is also hosting a savory pop-up with rotating Chefs Niki Nakayama, Nicholas Elmi, and Ryan McCaskey. Be sure to reserve these exclusive seats in advance. And like always, StarChefs and Steelite will donate 100 percent of the proceeds to C-Cap, a non-profit organization whose mission is to promote and provide career opportunities in the foodservice industry for inner-city youth through culinary arts education and apprenticeship. Stay Tuned!!! We're sure to add more to this dynamic line-up.
