As the seasons change we find ourselves feeling very connected to the Earth. This change makes us appreciate and celebrate all the land offers to us in the fall.  Upcoming at frame, Chef Gabriel Botezan helps connect us with our roots through his old world, nuanced Romanian culinary expertise.

Born in Romania, Chef Gabriel Botezan honed both his culinary craft and tv personality while competing on Hell’s Kitchen of Romania. In our parts however, Gabriel served as long-time Chef De Cuisine at Bacco under Luciano Delsignore as well as working with frame favorite Anthony Lombardo.

It is here in our story when we knew Gabriel and his phenomenal, old world cuisine was needed at frame. Adding endless inspiration to the concept is Gabriel’s wife Gabriela, a pastry chef born in Transylvania, a part of Romania known for its hospitality, beautiful scenery and occasional vampire.

Let’s round out the month with this powerhouse couple and an evening which promises a glimpse into the true Romanian culinary traditions.

“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.”
