Samesa Sunday - February Dinner with Chef Max Sussman 

Feb 9th

Samesa Sundays
February Dinner
Chef Max Sussman

Dinner One of Samesa Sunday’s brings us the first dinner of our three-part culinary series curated with inspiring Sunday menus, by James Beard Award-nominated Chef Max Sussman , recognized in Vogue, The New York Times and Food & Wine Magazine.

The idea for Season Tickets is to further create a sense of togetherness and tradition, allowing frame to be a space to experience the worlds’ oldest act of community: sharing a meal. Our intention is to create an opportunity to dine communally on Sundays with friends, family, and strangers, removing the ” fuss” of entertaining and bringing back the nostalgia of Sunday Supper with friends.

We welcome Max Sussman to our frame tables with a meal perfectly balanced between creation and nurture centered around family-style Smoked Ras al Hanout Lamb Shoulder with Beet-Horseradish Tzatziki finished with homemade honey cake and tahini-honey ice cream.

Imparting a sense to break the rules and sit communally with joyful mixed crowds, we toast to the meals and share an opportunity to draw ideas from each other. Perhaps like the Sundays, you grew up with-but these with a new slant.

“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.”
