Temaki 手巻き a Japanese phrase meaning “hand-rolled”… comes to frame thanks to the creative vision of Chef Nick George (Noble Fish alumni and Pop-Up fave at York, Ann Arbor) with a modern hand roll sushi dinner experience.

Pedigree matters in the world of Temaki and Chef Nick is vigilant about his seafood sourcing and prudent in his adornments. For this one-night-only interactive DIY dinner, Nick will hand-select sustainable seafood and locally grown produce to his heart’s desire and present us with personal instruction and everything we need, ala: expertly prepared ingredients, to build our own conical sushi hand rolls.

The glow from frame’s red dim lights and the multiple styles of Japanese Sake (from light and fruity to rich and bold)…wines from around the world to accompany the jam paneer cuisine (off-dry riesling and sake yeast fermented Sauvignon Blanc)…and neatly appointed cocktails using Japanese Whiskey, Yuzu and Shiso are what continue to make Thursday’s one of our favorite night’s at frame.

“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.”
