Chef Tiffani has made a name for herself nationwide for her dynamic personality, culinary prowess, and fierce work ethic. Under Big Heart Hospitality, her Boston based restaurant group, she creates restaurants that are warm, inspired, and instantly lovable.
Tiffani began her career working under such renowned chefs as Daniel Boulud, Alain Ducasse, and Todd English. In 2006, early into her career, she was cast on the very first season of Bravo’s Top Chef, and placed as runner-up.

After transforming Rocca into a critically acclaimed dining destination with a three star review from The Boston Globe, Tiffani set her sights on creating her own restaurant.
