Detroit is about to get a really, really interesting new Indian experience
and we couldn’t be more ecstatic that frame gets to experience it.

Join us for an exclusive test-kitchen preview by Akash Sudhakara, with a sophisticated menu upgrade reflective of the pan-Indian dishes of where his parents came from in Bangalore, India. Deep in flavor and dangerously moreish.
Alongside Indian-born, Chef Bharath Reddy, inspired by traditional Indian cuisine and his personal family history, bringing plenty of heat to this fully modern Indian GastroPub concept.

Festive Beats. Super Crave-able. Wildly tasty.
A not-to-miss beverage pairing from frame’s trusted boozy team.

“Tried out frame as part of the ‘grandma’s basement series’ with Chef James (Mabel Gray) and Chef John (Grey Ghost). Our Italian Family Dinner was delicious! Enjoyed every course (which kept coming). Best meatballs I’ve ever had!! Love the idea of home Cookin with a little flare, shared Family style with strangers. A wonderful evening!”

What are people saying?

Mark Kurlyandchik, Detroit Free Press

“The vibe at the Frame dinners also reflected the personalities of the chefs, who were able to interact with guests and offer stories about their food memories while cooking rustic dishes without the same expectations that come with their respective restaurants. The food was predictably great and unpretentious, but the series also highlighted the growing importance of personality and storytelling to the modern dining experience.”
