Juhu Indian Weekend
Chef Preeti Mistry

San Francisco is about to get a really, really interesting new Indian experience…
and we couldn’t be more ecstatic that frame gets to taste it first.
Next up comes an exclusive test-kitchen preview by San Francisco’s filmmaker-turned-chef Preeti Mistry who cooks Indian fare with a distinctly Bay Area style. Nominated Best Chef of the West twice by the James Beard Foundation, featured on CNN’s Parts Unknown with Anthony Bourdain, on Top Chef, Season 6 and author of The Juhu Beach Club Cookbook, Preeti’s Indo cuisine, influenced by her background as a second-generation Indian, is laden with plenty of heat in a fully modern genre. It’s super crave-able, wildly tasty, communal, fun — and the centerpiece of this epic tasting menu.
We couldn’t dream of a better way to kick off April.

“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.”
