Toad Hall is located in SoHo only a few blocks from the International Culinary center, and it’s the after school hangout for ICC’s students. Every Friday after a long week of classes, students pack up their knife bags and head over to “Toads” and get a cold beer and discuss their burnt croutons and underdone filets. Toad Hall is very much a dive bar in that it’s a small room with a few tables, one bar with liquor from years past, and a pool table shoved in the back. It may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but it’s definitely perfect for “rough-around-the-edges” cooks.
