Give us a reason to throw a party at frame. Specifically, one celebrating food and cultural history, and we’re the first one to RSVP!

Next Up: The Feast of St John, celebrated by the Hoti tribe of Northern Albania on their “feast” day of August 29th.
For us stateside, this biggest Albanian holiday of the year comes celebrated in our humble abode, by none other than Chef Mark Camaj. A frame favorite, and first-generation Albanian American who studied at Le Cordon Bleu, cutting his teeth with NYC chefs from the likes of Andrew Carmellini and Marco Canora.

One Night Only. Think Rustic, Eastern European, 1980’s Hamtramck Vibes. Traditional Meze Platters with Cured Meats and Cheeses from the Balkans; Whole Lamb Spit Roasted over Wood Fire. Gremolata, House Made Garlic Yogurt; Shopska Salad and Albanian Homemade Bread.

Grab your seats. And start dreaming of Albanian “Pate Choux”…
You’ll Feel the Love, And Taste it Too.
frame, Albanian style.

“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.”
