Join Boston’s in-the-know
twenty and thirty something’s as they sample the online-the-fly
cooking wizardry of Iron Chef Louie (a.k.a. Louis DiBiccari).
It’s a new and innovative twist to the dinner party theme and
trust us, a party it is. About twice a month Louie and his team
pick a new Boston club or restaurant to host an ICL night.
Guests descend upon the venue like ravenous locusts and somehow
nobody gets hurt.
If you are looking for a place to sit down for a peaceful
dinner with your friends, then this is probably not the event
for you. You’d be better off going to a restaurant. But
if you want to meet a ton of new Bostonians, enjoy some cocktails
and eat delicious and adventurous food while interacting, then
we’re the perfect event for you. We promise an evening
with Iron Chef Louie is like no other. Each event takes on it’s
own charm and persona. To be honest, we can’t really tell
you exactly what’s going to happen because we don’t
what’s going to happen until it happens. Every night is
unique and different. But the general schedule goes a little
something like this:
The event date and location are announced on our website:
and members of the ICL mailing list are
sent an email invitation. “Cheffers” visit the website
to RSVP and vote online for their favorite dinner themes and
ingredients. These votes are tallied by the Florida State Governor’s
office, recounted twice and then airmailed to Louie in a hermetically
sealed envelope. Carefully checking for Anthrax, Louie opens
the envelope and discovers the winning ingredients (and then
he usually begins to cry). At this point Louie and his team
of talented chefs rush off to the grocery store and start shopping.
The clock is ticking and they have 300 hungry mouths to feed.
The Venue doors open at 7pm. This begins the cocktail &
mixer portion of our evening. If you’re friendly, you’ll
meet a ton of new people at an Iron Chef Louie night. If you
sit in a corner, you probably won’t meet anyone. Some
people come straight from work. Others go home first, put on
their hot pants and grab their dancing shoes. Your admission
fee is collected at the door. At that time you are given an
ICL meal ticket and Ciroc Snap Frost Vodka drink ticket. The
complimentary Ciroc cocktail is valid until 8:30pm.
Around 8pm Louie and his staff start to appear on the floor.
They will walk around the venue passing out tasty appetizers.
Appetizers have ranged from “Fried Plantains with Guacamole-coconut
milk fondue”, “Seared teriyaki beef sticks with
Asian pears” and the crowd favorite, “Ian’s
dirty (rice) balls”. This gives you just enough to nibble
on to hold you over to dinner.
By this time Louie is usually ripping out the little hair
he has left on his head. Dropping everything, Louie grabs the
microphone, welcomes the crowd, reveals the winning votes and
explains the meal he has created. He usually throws in a few
jokes that aren’t really funny. Sometimes he talks about
clubbing baby seals, but he doesn’t really mean it.
Dinner is served via buffet, numerous food stations or family
style depending on the venue, available seating and cuisine.
As we mentioned, we don’t find out how it works until
we get there. Regardless we do our best to provide everyone
food as quickly as possible so that you may enjoy Louie’s
At this point you’re pleasantly content. Your stomach
is full, your taste buds exhausted, you’ve had a few drinks
and you’re ready to get your groove on. That guy or girl
over in the corner is looking a little cuter than he or she
did at 7pm. Or perhaps it’s girls’ night out, so
you grab your friends and hit the dance floor like a Mike Tyson
punch. Either way, this is when the party gets going. We usually
have a great DJ or live band to keep you entertained until the
club kicks us out.
By this time you get to party WITH Iron Chef Louie and his
staff. After they’re done working, they’ll come
out and have a few drinks with you. Louie and the ICL staff
are always available for questions and comments (so long as
you don’t say anything negative about his food). Just
kidding. We truly want to make it an interactive evening and
we always appreciate feedback from you, our loyal guests. We
can’t even begin to tell you how many new friends and
acquaintances we’ve made over the last two years.
Well to be honest, two years ago a bunch of friends
were sitting around thinking about how cold the social scene
in Boston can be at times. Granted we’ve all been there.
You’re at a bar, someone’s hitting on you and you’re
just not feeling it. That happens everywhere, but in Boston,
sometimes it feels like I you need an ice scraper to introduce
yourself and start-up a conversation with a total stranger.
You often get that, “Do I know you?” blank stare
in response. But we are an overly friendly (and sometimes obnoxious)
group so we just kept talking to random people and invited them
and their friends back to our apartment for dinner parties.
What started off as a few people in our apartment has now grown
into 400 people partying at Boston’s hottest nightclubs.
But trust us, we haven’t forgotten our roots. ICL nights
are about food, friends and good times. ICL nights are about
being adventurous. You’re probably going to try something
you’ve never eaten before. You also might find yourself
networking and making contacts with tons of successful strangers
in the city. Or you may just come because you enjoy great food
and you like to shake your tail feather. Either way, It’s
up to you. But we’ll admit, you’ll have to work
pretty hard to not meet any new people.
We always love to hear from our guests. Please feel free to
email us at: email@example.com
to let us know what you like and don’t like about the
event. Or give us some feedback on how you think we can make
it better. Have a favorite venue? Let us know about it and we’ll
see if we can get Iron Chef Louie into it.
In a community just outside Boston, within the sacred halls
of a place called "Brookhawk". In a kitchen equipped
with nothing, Iron Chef Night was born. Its story is worth telling,
I just wish I could remember it.
The idea was simple and random and even a little spontaneous.
I guess we were just hungry. One night we made spaghetti and
meatballs, then pizza, calzones, next thing you know we have
a web site and a small cult following. Such is life. As the
weeks past and our food frenzied weekly religion grew redundant
and tedious, we looked to the networks for guidance. What we
discovered has changed our lives... not really for the better.
As our Monday night pasta fest evolved and popularity grew
a concept became a necessity. A theme was born. Since our inaugural
season our concept has reached as far as Japan, where Iron Chef
is commonplace. Eventually the T.V. Food Network got in on the
action by airing a program similar to our concept but with chefs
competing against each other. Their program is very popular
and everyone associated with it is making tons of money... how
nice for them.
As the saying goes, "you are what you eat ". Therefore,
on any given week we could be a fine mix of chicken, potatoes,
feta cheese, chocolate, and fiddlehead ferns. We're fine with
this reality, we are also chemically imbalanced and, perhaps,
a little insane. Just the same, we put on a good show.
The rules are simple. Our guests (that’s you and your
entourage) vote on a carefully and strategically organized list
of themes and ingredients. The commissioner tallies the votes
and the winning choices are revealed to the iron chef just hours
before go time on Thursdays. Guests are rewarded with edible
food, an atmosphere littered with tomfoolery, and a melting
pot of some of Boston’s finest personalities. What started
with 10 people in our apartment has grown into something tremendous.
You don’t want to miss out on this crazy concept we have.
People love it. I’m still not sure why…
