Mess Hall's Persian New Year Dinner

March 21, 2019 - 6:30pm to 8:30pm

The Persian New Year (called Nowruz or Norooz) is a multiday celebration of new life and good luck, which annually falls on the spring equinox. Join Mess Hall and restauranteur Saied Azali (Convivial, Mintwood Place) for a 4-course dinner & beverage pairing in celebration of Nowruz, and to ring in the Spring!  

The menu, prepared by Chef Keyvan Djavan, will feature classic, sumptuous Iranian flavors (think saffron, rose water & pistachio), with a modern twist. Ben Alt of Reliable Tavern will pair each course with interesting wines and creative cocktails.


Chef Keyvan Djavan was classically trained in both Iran and the US. He very recently returned to the area from Tehran, where he's owned and operated a restaurant since 2013. Chef Djavan is excited to bring his culinary talents and the cuisine of Iran to DC!
