High High Tea
with Tea Master
and dinner paired by
Chef Rebecca LaMalfa
Afternoon tea started in mid-19th century England for wealthy women to invite their friends for finger sandwiches in the late afternoon to avoid feeling hungry before dinner.
While we at frame have huge respect for the traditional craft and love of fine tea, we’ve opted to “push the envelope” thanks to botanist-turned-tea master Elias Majid, and our resident cocktail guru, Tim Avery who are combining their creative talents — for a sensory grown-up (boozy) bespoke tea party for our September calendars.
We’re holding onto the quintessential experience — but instead of pots of Early Grey and bite-sized-cucumber filled brioche — be prepared for the most stunning spirit-forward pairing of Eli tea-infused cocktails with a high-tea dinner thoughtfully paired by Chef Rebecca LaMalfa.

“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!”

“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.”
