Tiffani Faison's Fenway barbecue hotspot Sweet Cheeks will soon have a neighbor and sibling. The chef plans to open a Southeast Asian-inspired restaurant called Tiger Mama this July, located in Michael Schlow's former space at 1363 Boylston Street (Happy's, Barrio Cantina), reports the Globe.
Faison and her wife Kelly Walsh travel to that part of the world frequently, according to the Globe, and Faison describes the cuisine there as "some of the greatest food in the world."
The space will feature two bars (one Tiki-themed), and Faison tells the Globe that "it'll be sexier than Sweet Cheeks."
Meanwhile, Sweet Cheeks occasionally delves into Asian cuisine territory with ramen specials.
