First-generation Nigerian Chef Godwin Ihentuge is how we describe low-key excellence.
Instinctive, inquisitive talent who dispensed the rulebook on becoming a mainstay of Detroit’s dining scene over the past 5 years.

Hot on the heels of his New Center success: Godwin has just opened a second Yum Village in downtown Cleveland.
And thanks to his enduring popularity, find him with Food Network’s Chef Bobby Flay (Current Season 29. Episode 4) cooking alongside Indian Chef Kingshuk Dey in a battle to bring Bobby down.

Snagging him for just one night…
Godwin brings a West African Tasting Table to Frame alongside an exclusive African wine pairing by Sommelier Sean Crenny.
Think : ‘Wild Game Suya and Sorrel Whipped Cream over a Belgian Waffle’, ‘Naan Flatbreads topped Smoked Fish Egusi and Turned Up Fufu’, and ‘Yam Pots De Creme with Toasted Marshmallow and Pistachio Ice Cream.’

Godwin doesn’t do subtle, which makes his wonderfully original, technicolor cooking the perfect antidote to the languor of a chilly Friday, February night.

“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.”
