A Vietnamese Tasting Table
Food & Wine’s Best New Chef Great Lakes Contender
Carlos Salazar

frame is channeling a Vietnamese vibe with Food & Wine’s Best New Chef Great Lakes Contender, Chef Carlos Salazar of Indianapolis.  Expanding the Mid-West food scene with boldly flavored Asian street food that was once hard to find outside of L.A and New York, Carlos brings frame a tasting table with flavors inspired by the street-food stalls in Asia and the Philippines. Inspiration: Filipino influence with the tomato salad,  Japanese with the raw dumplings, Thai from the sour sausage, and Vietnamese with the pork floss.

Come hungry. Carlos can’t wait to feed you.

“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!”

“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.”
