Revolver owner Peter Dalinowski is taking temporary dining experiences to the next level with his upcoming project, Frame. Joebar’s sister restaurant, developed in partnership with Joe and Cari Vaughn, will bring extended restaurant residencies to Hazel Park when it launches later this month, the Detroit Free Press first-reports.
Similar to other residency programs such as Dallas’s now-defunct Kitchen LTO, the 48-seat Frame will give established chefs an opportunity to take over and really explore a menu for anywhere from a week to a month. First up to bat will be the staff from Katoi, the acclaimed Corktown restaurant that is on hiatus after a fire destroyed the interior of the building last month. Chef Brad Greenhill and his team will be operating a month-long pop-up (weekends only) in the Frame space with a five-course rotating menu featuring new dishes and punch.
While the Katoi pop-up will be primarily run by the staff from the restaurant, Frame will have a consistent front-of-house team. Likewise, bar manager Anna Atanassova (previously The Skip and Rock City Eatery) will be on board harmonizing bar operations between Frame and Joebar. The Katoi pop-up launches March 31 with tickets going on sale on March 16 on the Frame website. The cost is $75 per person.
