For many of us, Chef George Azar needs no introduction…born in Detroit, as the son of Palestinian immigrants, he’s trained at some of the best restaurants in the world, including Noma in Copenhagen and Alinea in Chicago.

Zagat named George on their National “30 Under 30 Rock Stars Redefining the Industry” list that highlights innovators in the culinary field across the U.S and George’s hot-spot Flowers of Vietnam, has been hand-selected by GQ Magazine as one of the Best New Restaurants in America.

Returning to frame next month, Chef brings Traditional Palestinian Cuisine into a Modern Palestinian Dinner Experience with a 5-course tasting menu celebrating the diversity and abundance of George’s cultural make-up. It’s his own rather brilliant approach to generations of family tradition married with Palestinian ingredients and techniques that make this culinary experience;
a not-to-miss.

What we end up with are gorgeous creations like ‘Kibbeh Niyeh’, ‘Petite Vegetables with Zaa’tar and Abbeleme Honey’, ‘Sardines
with Tunisia, and ‘Kunafa with Sweet Cream, Coffee and Cardamom.’

Paired with wines by frame’s Sommelier Sean Crenny and rounded out with cocktails by frame’s mixtress Jaz’min Weaver…
Earthy. Floral. Smoky. Bitter. Herbaceous. Here’s your chance to experience the magic for yourselves.

“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.”
