Brad Greenhill and Katoi 2.0 (Takoi)
They did it. They created a nationally relevant restaurant in the heart of Detroit. They brought throngs of people to the city, and showed what was possible. Then, it was gone. A spark, a flame, a tragedy. But, you can’t keep a good chef down. They regrouped, and started all over again. Planning, building, cooking, creating. Katoi will return, better, stronger. There’s no doubt in that. For now, frame is very pleased to provide the Katoi Bois a temporary home, while offering you a glimpse of what’s to come at our grand opening in June. We honestly aren’t quite ready. Hand-thrown dinnerware is mid-production, custom tables are being built, graphic design is ongoing. But, sometimes life changes your plans overnight. It did for Katoi, and it did for frame. So, join us for frame (beta), an extended Katoi residency at our lovely, almost-polished home in Hazel Park.

“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.”
