Chef Jackson Kalb, with a culinary journey starting at Melisse at the age of 13 and experiences at prestigious establishments like Joel Robuchon and Alinea, faced the challenge of competing on Top Chef without the ability to smell or taste due to COVID. Despite this setback, he successfully opened Jame Enoteca in 2018, followed by Ospi in 2020, and expanded his culinary ventures in 2023 with Jemma Hollywood, Jemma di Mare (seafood-focused), and Jemma Pizzeria in the Palisades Village, showcasing his passion for Italian-American cuisine.
