A Valentine's Day Old-School Steakhouse by Chef Michael Barrera 

Feb 14th - Feb 15th

A Valentine’s Day
Old-School Steakhouse
Chef Michael Barrera
and a special evening of wine curated
by frame’s resident wine director and sommelier
Bryan Lamorena

Steakhouses evoke quintessential old-school dining and their historical charm are part of the appeal. Cuts of filet, New York Strip, bearnaise sauce, clinking martini glasses, Cabernet and creamed spinach.

Just goes to show ya; romantic brasserie never goes out of style.

Just in time to feel the love we’re throwing it back in time as frame transforms into a swanky old-school steakhouse under the direction of Chef Michael Barrera.  Not only nailing the New York Strips and Petit Filets (Michael developed and oversaw the steakhouse fare for Detroit’s PRIME + PROPER ) he’s breathing new life into classic steak sides just for us; bright, punchy steak tartare, wedge salads on chilled plates and airy “mac & cheese” built on plates shareable for two.

Whoever you share the weekend with works. Just spend your lovin’ with us.

Pro-move: pre-order 6 red roses and we’ll have them ready at your seats.

“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.”
