Must Get: Udon, Salad

Unfortunately for me and my coworkers, the food scene near my workplace is minimal to non-existant unless you are fans of fast food and Thai. Frame opened up a year ago, but for some reason no one at work discovered it until a few weeks ago. It’s an upscale deli, think dean and deluca without the ridiculous prices. They get their pastries from Ceci cela, their bagels from h & h, their bread from sullivan street bakery, the list probably goes on but that’s my knowledge of the place and it’s food. Their salads are inventive for a deli, their sushi is fresh, and the options are extensive. It’s nothing worth the trek out here for, but for someone who works nearby it’s amazing.

Must Get: chicken tacos

This deli looked promising, but sadly fell a bit short. We ordered their spicy pork tacos, chicken tacos, and chicken enchiladas. Their chicken tacos were the best of the three, then the chicken enchiladas, and in a far, far, far third came their spicy pork tacos. In their container, the spicy pork looked amazing– moist, tender, etc. but when you a took a bite, the taste was anything but desirable! It left an after taste of medicine, like robitussin! It’s kind of a toss up if I’ll ever go back to this place again… They do occasionally have lengua on the menu which may be worth trying.
