Chinese Lunar New Year, The Year of The Rabbit, with Chef Ava Yau of Ann Arbor's Of Rice and Men
Come late January we’re ringing in the Chinese Lunar New Year (The Year of The Rabbit) with a full-blown traditional Lunar Experience by Chef Ava Yau from Ann Arbor’s Of Rice + Men — ushering us in a year of goodwill and good fortune. Plan on:’Peking Duck’ representing a happy, healthy, and prosperous year ( the skin of finished Peking Duck is red, a lucky colour in Chinese culture); ‘Noodle Clay Pots’ representing a long, long life ( here, it’s customary to slurp down the noodle without chewing so that the strands aren’t severed); ‘Crispy Salt and Pepper Cod’ meaning your year will be filled with prosperity and all you wish; and ‘Sesame Rice Balls’ a staple for New Year celebrations intended to symbolize togetherness and family reunion.
Bright, colorful, and full of customary dishes to delight all the senses, prepare for multiple courses with distinct, historical significance to set ourselves on a track for good luck in the new year.
Get set for a night of illumination, innovative creations, and a custom beverage experience curated by Frame’s Jaz’min Weaver and Sean Crenny.
One intimate seating each night.
The Year of the Rabbit is a dashing one, and we’re in for a joyful (and delicious) time.
