The sun, the sand, the surf. Bank robberies, backstabbing, and betrayals.
Sounds to us like a classic night at Frame. Maybe not classic, but an epic scene nonetheless.

Bringing decades of film expertise to the frame table, we can’t wait to spend an evening with Detroit News Film Critic Adam Graham for his sun-soaked, action-packed curriculum at the intersection of food and film…with a FILM Summer School class.

In our time together, we will open a dialogue with Adam not only about his tenure working in the entertainment sphere but about his all-time favorite film; taking a deep dive into the summertime nineties cult-classic, Point Break, celebrating its 30th anniversary this year.

Plan on a light-themed movie-style dinner. Spoiler Alert: think of the scene when Johnny Utah (Keanu Reeves) infamously orders shrimp and fries. Plus: a beachy-welcome cocktail at the start of the class.

Seating for the film and conversation will be socially distanced and adhere to our response plan that includes every measure of protocol on workplace infection-control practice and health and safety training.

“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.”
