Modern Ethiopian with Helina Melaku of Konjo Me Frame & FRAMEbar > > Modern Ethiopian with Helina Melaku of Konjo Me

Ethiopian-born Helina Melaku at Frame for one night only. Refined versions of quintessential dishes from Addis Ababa, the capital city of Ethiopia, with re-imaginings of her family recipes through a plant-based lens as well as feel-good favorites for the carnivores in the room. Need we say more?

Think: Ater Kik (split pea stew minced in turmeric), Sega Wot (beef cooked in caramelized onion and infused with berbere), and Misir (red lentil stew), all served with spongy injera, a sourdough-risen flatbread made from teff flour that is the heart of the Ethiopian table. Soak up the juices sans fork and knife and experience Ethiopian culture in all its bright deliciousness.
Modern beautiful plating. Old school flavor. New school style.
Grab your seats. Thank us later.
