Since then, there has been a move from a small space on Frenn Street to a major venue next to the upscale Spice Dragon on North Street.

Top Chef Finalist Tiffani Faison Opens Hot Boston EateryBy: - Mar 22nd, 2012
In Sweet Cheeks Boston touts a contender for first team, All American Barbecue. At a price. This is an upscale designer rib joint pretending to have rustic charm in a densely seated noisy ambiance. The meat is awesome but some of the sides just suck big time. Former Top Chef finalist Tiffani Faison needs to step up her game.
