A Parisian Savant Preview Dinner with Chef Jordan Whitmore

Aug 23rd

A Parisian Savant Preview Dinner
Chef Jordan Whitmore

The best things in Paris tend to be the classics. Enter here the classical savoir-faire you’re familiar with, but dialed up: think French Onion Soup with Waygu Dashi, Gruyere Popovers, Caviar Bumps and Creme Brûlée with Candied Mint.

Jordan Whitmore (leading the kitchen) and Rebecca Wurster (helming the bar) are the creative duo behind this French Diner concept … Savant, breathing new life into Cass Corridor, later this fall.

So for now… until they open, tuck your napkin in, look your toasting partner in the eye and let’s join as Savant does what they do best, for us, right here at frame.
We’re tickled-rose to host this preview.

What are people saying?


“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.”
