It’s no wonder James Beard Nominated, Anthony Lombardo is the Chef that all the other Chefs want to cook with.
His Roman Inspired Italian dishes of Detroit’s Shewolf are the stuff of legends.

But We’re Here to Talk Sicilian
Because that’s what we ( lucky us ) will be experiencing when Anthony joins us in the frame kitchen next month.
Working with the absolute finest ingredients he can get his hands on…
Anthony brings a multi-course tasting menu rooted in Traditional Sicilian Cooking, done frame-style.

24 intimate seats, either on the frame patio or inside, near frame’s open kitchen.

Caponata alla Palermitana. CuzCuz alla Trapanese. Coniglio in Agrodolce.
Paired with hand-chosen bottles by frame’s wine director Sean Crenny with a list featuring Sicily’s most important producers…
With not-to-miss bespoke cocktails “alla Siciliana” by frame’s mixtress Jaz’min Weaver.

There are few menus better to appreciate food and wine in all its glory.
And Mark Our Words: there has never been a more interesting time to get en-vogue with Sicilian Culture.

“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.”
