Progressive Pescatarian
with dinner by 
Chef Adam Mcmarlin
and bubbly sips by
MAWBY Vineyards

Creativity is what makes us tick at frame.  Since day one we’ve tagged ourselves as curators, bringing people together and connecting food lovers from all sides of the scene who might otherwise never get the chance to meet.

Vegan, Wood Fired, Cultural Culinary Experiences.  Whatever you’re into, we couldn’t be more geeked about this wildly talented combo swinging down from Suttons Bay, a village in Leelanau County, for one Friday night of environmentally responsible food by Chef Adam Mcmarlin of Wren and bubbly sips by their Northern neighbors, MAWBY winery.

Laid-back, Unpretentious Vibes. Supremely Creative. Completely Pescatarian. Vegetables Sourced by Local Responsible Farmers and Land Stewards. Big White Wines from Little Leelanau Peninsula. Meant to be Shared with Friends.
There’s Never Been a Better Time to be Meat-less.
And by the way, Friday the 13th ~~ you’ve never looked so cool.

“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.”
