San Fransisco’s Joe Hargrave and Sara Deseran
Tacolicious, our favorite Bay Area taco joint, is taking a family road trip and heading to Hazel Park, Michigan just for frame! T-lish will be throwing a delicioso two day fiesta, serving up San Fransisco-style tacos and much more.
Since its humble beginnings as a taco stand at the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market in 2009, Tacolicious has expanded to three San Francisco locations, a fourth in Palo Alto and a fifth in San Jose. Voted by Travel + Leisure as one of the best tacos in America, Tacolicious has been more successful than owners Joe Hargrave and Sara Deseran could have dreamed.
To pair with their tacos—plus their spicy Caesar, signature tuna tostada, fresh corn on the cob, and more—they’ll be serving up summery libations including a classic margarita, the refreshing watermelon-and-basil Lolita Squeeze, and one of their most popular cocktails, the Pasion, made with habanero-spiked tequila and passionfruit. Vegetarians will find plenty to enjoy too (hey, they are from California). Mingle with Joe and Sara and their culinary- and front-of-the-house team to get tips for throwing a taco party. Take it to the next level by buying one of a Tacolicious cookbook, chalk full of the secrets to their kitchen and bar, offered at a special for-frame-only price of $12. Sara, co-owner and longtime food writer, will be signing copies.

“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.”
