Israeli with Chef Michael Ran

Nov 14th

Chef Michael Ran

Chef Michael Ran at frame for one night only. Refined versions of quintessential Israeli dishes on a Sunday night to gather with friends and family. Need we say more?

Growing up in a town (Michael lived in Metro Detroit for much of his childhood and teenage years)
where “middle eastern” food ruled the culinary scene…
it was while working under Israeli Chef Mike Solomonov at Philadelphia’s Zahav that opened Michael’s eyes to what other foods existed inside of the Middle East, primarily within the melting pot that is Israel.

Here, a menu inspired by the cultures that made their way to Israel thousands of years ago …
With a little influence of where Michael comes from: the power of his mom’s kitchen.

And the mastery of where he’s been: cutting his teeth at Bacco Ristorante under Luciano Del Signore and Anthony Lombardo whilst still in his twenties, Chef Michael Ran later made the trek to New York, finding his new culinary home at Eataly in the heart of Manhattan before Philadelphia’s Zahav, meeting all manner of amazing people from the country’s unique food community along the way.

Doing a little testing in the frame kitchen, Michael brings his return to Detroit, and our taste buds can hardly wait.

“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.”
