Sweet Cheeks hits home run; Wahlburgers good for fans
Tiffani Faison’s Sweet Cheeks is BBQ heaven; Wahlburgers delivers burgers and fries
We live in the era of the celebrity chef. What does fame mean for someone who cooks for a living? It creates an automatic level of interest in his or her restaurants. It also creates an automatic level of expectation - and anticipation, when the restaurant specializes in a beloved American classic like barbecue or burgers. Tiffani Faison, known for her appearance on “Top Chef,’’ succeeds with Sweet Cheeks, but the Wahlberg-owned Wahlburgers is more for fans.
