Chef Amado Lopez’s career is a journey that revolves around the fondness and authenticity of Mexico.

Amado now calls Detroit home, opening his celebrated taqueria, Casa Amado ~

For his second April weekend at frame, Amado marries the ingredients and techniques from Mexico’s highly dissected mountain ranges and plateaus: Puebla, Oaxaca and Chiapas.

And what we end up with are gorgeous creations like ‘Ceviche with Bay Scallops, Avocado and Mexican Cocktail Sauce’
‘Pork Tinga with Crispy Potatoes and Chorizo-Tomato Sauce’ and ‘Lime Posset with Shaved Papaya.’

Matched in authenticity and sustainable creativity is the paired cocktail menu by frame’s mixtress Jaz’min Weaver

“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.”
