Hazel Park dining pop-up Frame has launched a new Sunday Dinner Club, and is partnering with Detroit’s Willis Show Bar for what is sure to be a snazzy evening.

Its first installment features a “warm winter” four-course dinner designed by Chef Matt Tulpa which features Parmesan Buñuelo, Whole Roasted Cabbage, Sourdough Bread and Pecorino Dumplings, and Braised Lamb with Smoked Grapes. After dinner, guests can catch a lift from the Detroit Bus Co. to head to Willis Show Bar for dessert and a nightcap, where a live band will cover John Coltrane’s landmark record Giant Steps before the Detroit Bus Co. returns guests to Hazel Park.

Sunday Dinner Club offers seatings at 4 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 27 at Frame; 23839 John R Rd., Hazel Park;; Tickets are $95.
