frame presents Flavors of Yucatán with Chef Amado Lopez of Casa Amado Taqueria at the patio @ frame and frame @ home
Just in time to welcome August, Chef Amado Lopez is throwing it back; old-school- style with traditional Flavors of Yucatán for his last epic menu, August 6th – August 9th. Feel the love with us outside on the patio@frame or choose to have your dinners prepared and neatly packaged for frame@home under the direction of Chef Amado. Plan on crunchy jicama salad with creamy pumpkin mint sauce, ceviche del dia, La Tierra Cochinita Pibil, bottles of energetic white wines with bright minerality, patio buckets and lemongrass margaritas by the pitcher. If you haven’t gotten out much this summer due to the obvious, we suggest spending an evening with this charismatic, super-talented chef that began his culinary career in Charlie Trotter’s kitchen in Chicago. One bite and you’ll quickly see why Trotter immediately recognized Amado’s genius and sent him to the CIA on a full scholarship from the Charlie Trotter Foundation. From here, it was training under Chef Shawn McClain at his restaurants Spring, Green Zebra, and Custom House. And getting closer to his true epicurean Mexican passion, it was five years side by side with Chef Rick Bayless, where he traveled to Mexico on culinary tours with Bayless, worked at Topolobampo, developed recipes and opened Xoco. Which then led to helming his own taqueria, Habanero, in the financial district of downtown Chicago. We’re obviously over the moon that he’s spending a few weeks with us, here at frame. Please know that with our ever-continuous changing climate, you can always exchange your tickets for frame @ home, on the day of your scheduled Yucatán experience. Our house or yours, where ever you are more comfortable. Either way: please don’t miss this week’s red-chile chocolate cake with avocado buttercream. Seriously. There is nothing not to like here.
