A Dinner Party Tribute to John Coltrane
Willis Show Bar
New year, new sunday rituals.
We are happy to announce the launch of a new dinner series called Sunday Dinner Club, a casual dinner party-ish experience to end the week with community. Sometimes we will hover and host at our frame home and often-times Sunday Dinner Club will travel on location.
Regardless of where we spend our Sunday nights. Relationships will be formed, menus will be built with a theme of locally sourced ingredients and cocktails and wine will be served with care. Our wish is that guests of the Sunday Dinner Club dinners will delight in each connection — by immersing in influential frame experiences.
For our first Sunday night, we pay tribute to John Coltrane’s “Giant Steps” and a collaboration with Willis Show Bar and Detroit Bus. Dinner starts at frame with a warm winter Sunday dinner by frame favorite, Chef Matt Tulpa. Once the fourth course is over, board the famed Detroit Bus for a trip to the Willis Show Bar.
Dessert, a custom welcome drink and a private live John Coltrane music experience performed by Jeffrey Trent on saxophone, Leroy Mickens on piano, Trevor Lamb on bass and Tariq Gardner on drums, awaits.
We know its a Sunday night so seatings are early, 4:00pm and 6:30pm. Grab your family, convince your friends or arrive solo. The Detroit Bus will bring you back to Hazel Park after the live music show at Willis Show Bar.
That’s right friends, it’s time for new Sunday rituals.

“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!”

“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.”
