The calabash is a gourd with multidisciplinary properties, carried from Asia to Africa, Europe and the Americas through human migration. They’ve been turned into food, tools, instruments and utensils. Like its namesake, Calabash, a joint project by Chef Nigel Jones (formerly Kingston 11) and Chef Hanif Sadr (Komaaj), seeks to be a hybrid restaurant, market, and events space. It is a place ripened with global innovation, a home for creative local chefs and producers to bring the uniqueness of their culture and flavors to The Town. Join us for a vibrant evening filled with delicious Jamaican and Iranian food and a conversation with Chef Nigel and Chef Hanif about how they’re transforming the way we gather.
