French Nouvelle Cuisine with Chef Brandon Zarb and French Wine

Feb 9th

French Nouvelle Cuisine
Chef Brandon Zarb
Wine Director and Sommelier
Bryan Lamorena

Paris is entering another culinary golden age.
And with its visually stunning influences, Chef Brandon Zarb is bringing French Nouvelle to frame.

In contrast to cuisine classique, an older form of haute cuisine, French Nouvelle cuisine is characterized with lighter, more delicate dishes and an increased emphasis on presentation. Knowledge and attention to detail pervades this entire menu.

Speaking of presentation, we can’t wait for you to meet our new frame Wine Director and Sommelier, Bryan Lamorena.  He’s amassed a beautiful collection of wines from France and will be taking the starring role at your table with a French wine pairing.

“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!”

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.”
