Chef Tiffani Faison has won over the hearts and tastebuds of Boston with Fenway’s barbeque hotspot Sweet Cheeks Q. Her long-awaited second restaurant now is slated to open December 10, according to The Boston Globe.

Faison talked about her new Southeast Asian restaurant, Tiger Mama, as well as her trips East that inspired her to make the culinary jump, in a Q&A with the Globe.

“I let my hair down with Sweet Cheeks and threw a party,’’ Faison told the publication. “[With Tiger Mama], I’m aiming up a little bit more. It’s more formal, a little more grown-up.’’
