TykesGiving with Nibble + Squeak and Chef Rebecca LaMalfa

Nov 9th
Nibble + Squeak
Chef Rebecca LaMalfa

It’s TykesGiving at frame because the pint-sized-set likes to get out and eat good food too!

We are opening our doors to infants, toddlers, children, parents, grandparents, caregivers and friends with young ones to kick-off TykesGiving – doing what we all love to do best — in our case, eat and drink — as frame opens the Detroit chapter of Nibble + Squeak,the brainchild concept of dining with kids at upscale eateries, happening everywhere from Los Angeles to London.

Plan on a mid day multi-course tasting menu from new mom Chef Rebecca LaMalfa with seatings perfectly planned around nap-time, lots of paired boozy sips, a live puppet show, mini family photo sessions, a takeaway swag-bag gift, and a totally seasonal fall foodie day with pipsqueaks in tow.

Bonus: meet a community of food-loving parents with small children and introduce your babes to different tastes, textures, and cuisine like Finnegan Lents, pictured here, our fave 10-month-old baby boy to chef parents Thomas Lents of The Foundation Hotel and our resident Chef Rebecca LaMalfa.
An autumn weekend lunch that the whole family can fully enjoy.

“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.”
