What do chefs do when they take a night off?
Grab a few friends, and cook a mad-genius meal…of course.

BFF Chefs Les Molnar of InLaws Hospitality (Johnny Noodle King and Green Dot Stables) and Chef Shawn Wright of Crispelli’s (the darling of the thin stone fired pizza world) are teaming up late April in the frame kitchen and doing just that.

Taking a night for themselves, to cook, play the music both of the chefs love, pair their favorite beer and wine and create a “chefs night off ” dinner party for you and I and 46 of our closest friends. We can’t wait to share in their social supper!

“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.”
