In 2006, Chef Rasheed Amedu and his partner Rose Rasmussen crossed paths on the social website known as Myspace. What blossomed into a friendship would eventually become a romantic connection that beckoned Amedu from Chicago to discover what Sacramento had to offer. Beyond falling in love with Rasmussen, Amedu developed a love for Sacramento, where his dream of owning a restaurant would be seeded in the development of Frankly.
Frankly is a monthly pop-up dining experience presented by Amedu and Rasmussen in collaboration with several members of the Sacramento community. Since forming in September of 2017, during the annual HOF Day, Frankly has been a jubilant expression of Amedu’s culinary background, which celebrates his Nigerian roots, Midwest upbringing and Californian connection.
