Five months since his last frame residency, we’re delighted to re-welcome, all-around mover and shaker and one of the biggest names in black chefs changing food in America, Chef Max Hardy bringing Black History Month to frame kicking off in style by pairing up with longtime friend and collaborator Chef Cedric Andrews.

Highlights this time around include Corn Pudding with Smoked Tomato Chutney and Crispy Fried Kale, Roasted Snapper with Ginger and Guava Beurre Blanc and Plantation Cake with Walnut and Coconut.

A two-part dinner party series celebrating African-American food, art and culture, this February 11th dinner brings 6 courses of remixed classics with Detroit visual artist Gerald Collins creating live speed painting performances during both seatings.

A very multi-sensory February celebration…we’re marking our calendars for a ‘not-to-miss’ evening filled with music to inspire, evoke, remember and celebrate important people, contributions and seminal moments in history

“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.”
