Low-key with a dim colorful glow, this sharing plates FRMAEbar menu brings us Barcelona-style tapas alongside a brand new boozy but balanced cocktail menu just in time for the long-anticipated warm weather.

Think: pan con tomate, seafood paella, patatas bravas, croquetas de Jamón serrano, and olive oil cake for dessert — all made for sharing.

Catch up with friends, fly solo, drop in at the bar, walk-in’s welcome or make a reservation.
TAPASbar is every Wednesday through Sunday, from May 11 until June 5.

Let us transport you to Basque country (temporarily in the heart of Hazel Park), all while supporting independent chefs when they need us the most.

Frame’s creative vibe and collaborative spirit are notoriously unpretentious.
Add in super-effing-tasty Spanish tapas by Frame’s mastermind Culinary Director Michael Barrera and a heartfelt wine pairing from Sommelier Diego Aliste… and we already know just what to do.

No need to order one of everything — it’s already coming.

We’re talking light and crispy baguette layered with tomato and thin slices of free-range, acorn-fed Iberian ham; piping hot patatas bravas with saffron aioli AND brava sauce; Moorish lamb skewers with house pickles; and Spanish olive oil cake with lemon, almond, and fig jam for a perfect ending to a perfect tapas dinner.

With a carefully built Spanish and reserve wine list by Frame Wine Director Diego Aliste and intricate cocktails coming from Adam Accivatti’s ever-thoughtful marble bar… from bite to sip, to sound and sights, it’s a full-encompassing Spanish table.

Grab a seat with us. We can hardly wait!
