The Year of The Tiger —  It’s Just Ahead —
and we’re going vegan ringing in the Chinese New Year with a full-blown traditional lunar experience.

Getting rid of last year’s energy and welcoming in the new, LA’s Vegan Chef Josie Clemens
brings us multi-courses with symbolic significance, age-old dishes that have stood the test of time,
reimagined in completely plant-based recipes.

We’re already drooling at thoughts of :
Josie’s Exceptionally Long Longevity Noodles: (长寿面 chángshòu miàn) representing a long, long life.
Leave your manners at home: it’s customary to slurp down these noodles without chewing so the strands aren’t severed.
and yes please …. 
Handmade Spring Rolls: (春卷 chūnjǔn) to attract good fortune for the coming year.

Frame transformed with origami lanterns and red peonies.
Each yurt an independent, personal glowing Lunar experience for six guests.
And what’s Chinese New Year without the iconic stashed
lucky red envelopes (known as 紅包, hóngbāo) which symbolize good wishes and luck for the new year ahead.
( hint: there may be one at your frame table just for you)

Any way you look at this frame experience…we’re in for a Taste of Good Fortune.
And one thing we know for certain:
The Year of the Tiger is going to be Delicious.

“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!”

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.”
