You’re going to fall in love with Romanian Summer Culture.

Adored Chefs Gabriel and Gabriela are back for another round in the frame kitchen. This time with a summery tasting menu celebrating the historical Romanian region of Muntenia, the southern part of their country, situated between the Danube, the Carpathian Mountains, and Moldavia.

Born in Romania and passionate advocates of the region’s dishes, this powerhouse couple is taking inspiration from their childhood summer hometowns,
bringing us a July, Petrecere de Vară
embedded in culture with tradition rich in history.

A preview of what’s to come to the frame tables:
creations like ‘Salata de vara’, whipped feta cheese, tricolor tomatoes, grilled scallion, and Romanian thyme; ‘Macrou’, mackerel with charred eggplant puree, confit fennel, mustard greens, and gremolata; and Prajitura București’, Bucharest pastry with moist chocolate cake, mousse, and pistachio cream each artfully crafted and technically immaculate.

This is One To Grab With a Few Friends.
Soak Up The Vibes, Ambience, Sounds & Mosaic Pieces
of Culture Gabriel and Gabriela Have In Store For Us.
One Bite and You’ll See What We Mean.

“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.”
