Modern Korean New Year
Chef Mike Han
Coming to frame for an early January residency it’s only fitting that Chef Mike Han is creating a Modern Korean New Year’s dinner party centered around traditional foods that are not only crazy delicious but also symbolically important to good health and long life, representing a clean start to the beginning of the New Year.
Pulling his inspiration from Korean flavors using Japanese techniques and his rare natural admiration for sustainable seafood, we’ll feast on 5 Korean courses including the traditional Korean New Year’s soup … tteokguk (떡국) made with thinly sliced white rice cakes and handmade dumplings.
Ancient tradition tells us that spoon-fulls of this beef bone broth grants good luck and a year of wisdom.

“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.”
