Hazel Park Progressive Dinner + Comedy with Cellarmen's

Apr 14th

frame (sunday dinner club)
A Hazel Park Progressive Dinner
A Cellarman’s Dinner (with pairings)
A Comedy Show at Cellerman’s Tasting Room

It’s called a Progressive Dinner in the US and a Safari Supper in the UK. In essence, successive courses prepared and eaten by different hosts. A Progressive in Hazel Park. Yes…

Here’s our plan for the night. — Start with dinner at frame….5 courses prepared and paired by the Cellerman’s quad:
Dominic Calzetta, Andrea Fairman, Andrew Zalewski, and Jeff Sanchez.  Well acquainted with Cellerman’s runaway success story of their Michigan craft mead, cider, and beer. What we didn’t know is how far rooted in imaginative gastronomy and flavor these fellas are well beyond their brewing room.

The quad has created a refreshingly original dinner menu paired with a pretty out there selection of extra dry ciders, French Oak wildflower meads, and European style beers.  But wait there’s more: after dinner, we’ll progress as a group by foot, 2 blocks down John R for a group comedy show by headlining comedian Mike Cronin, at Cellerman’s Tasting Room. With more libations, of course.  Hence: A Hazel Park Progressive Dinner.  Come along for the eats, drinks, laughs and the walk!

“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!”

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.”
