Old City’s American-fusion concept Frame has thoroughly revamped its menu helmed by seasoned Executive Chef Ricardo Sandoval.
Frame opened in February, initially with Executive Chef Brianna Wellmon, focusing on a menu with various flavors and influences geared toward late-night diners. Now Chef Sandoval, who previously worked at Scarpetta in Center City, has redesigned the globally inspired menu for those with a sophisticated palate. It features small plates and large plates with some vegan and gluten-free options.
Highlights of the new menu that are sure to entice the tastebuds include:
A Mediterranean-inspired grilled Spanish octopus served with hummus, mixed salad, celery, capers, and heirloom cherry tomatoes in a lemon vinaigrette.
A classic French stew, ratatouille consists of baked eggplant, zucchini, squash, and heirloom tomatoes in a savory tomato sauce.
An Asian-inspired sesame-crusted tuna served with a celery root puree, grilled scallions, and a spicy soy sauce.
An Italian-inspired spaghetti vongole consisting of house-made spaghetti, little neck clams, crispy guanciale, and cherry tomatoes in a white wine sauce.
An American-style filet mignon served with truffle mac & cheese and caramelized endive in a demi sauce.
While the menu brings new tempting food selections, the rest of the restaurant and intimate social lounge remains the same. Craft cocktails are still a focal point of the space, along with its velvet-lined walls and jewel-toned booths designed for maximum good vibes with friends.
The restaurant can be booked for large parties and events.
Frame is located in the former Marmont Steakhouse at 222 Market Street.
