Modern Filipino Dinner Party
Chef Carlo Lamagna 

Helping us to channel our “party-people” energy towards spring, we’re pulling out our 1970’s soul, and re-welcoming Portland’s Chef Carlo Lamagna for a second residency celebrating the ingredients and culture of the Philippines and his family.

Round #2 @ frame shows Carlos’ versatility with a menu that hops between fried beef threads with soft egg to squid ink miki noodles with picked crab and a
Filipino Vegetable Stew (Ginataang Kalabasa) bathed in coconut broth and alliums.

Matched in authenticity with a cocktail menu by frame’s resident cocktail masters, assemble a crew of your favorites, as this vibe begs for lingering. Bonus: there’s a vegetarian option at check out.

“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.”
