Tiffani Faison

Known for her dynamic personality and fierce work ethic, Chef Tiffani Faison has blazed a trail in Boston's culinary community. Tiffani began her career working under renowned chefs such as Daniel Boulud, Alain Ducasse and Todd English. She also worked in prestigious kitchens in Nantucket, New Orleans, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. She opened her first Boston restaurant, Sweet Cheeks Q in 2011, drawing inspiration from her love of Southern barbecue and extensive travels in Texas. She followed this with three more restaurants; Tiger Mama, inspired by her travels in Southeast Asia, Fool's Errand a playful adult snack bar, and most recently, Orfano, a subversive Italian American restaurant guided by a distinct, “sorry Nonna” attitude. This year, Tiffani will debut two new concepts at the highly anticipated Boston food hall, High Street Place: Tenderoni’s, an old school grinder and pizza joint and Dive Bar, an inventive seafood focused spot that draws inspiration from both her Boston roots and her time cooking in New Orleans. Marking her many culinary achievements, the James Beard Foundation nominated Tiffani as “Best Chef: Northeast” in 2018 & 2019. She was appointed to The Commonwealth of Massachusetts’ Restaurant Promotion Commission last year for her commitment to the state’s restaurant business. She currently serves on the Board of Directors for Women Chefs and Restaurateurs and BAGLY (Boston Alliance of Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Queer Youth). She is also a frequent judge on Food Network’s “Chopped”.
