Top Chef star and James Beard Award-winning chef, Kwame Onwuachi, who opened two shortlived fine dining establishments in Washington D.C., has returned to his hometown New York City to open his first restaurant. Tatiana is the crown jewel restaurant inside of the $550 million overhaul at Lincoln Center’s David Geffen Hall.
Here, Onwuachi pays homage to his Bronx roots, with a menu of classics with the requisite spin - that includes a crudo-style escovitch, a truffle chopped cheese, and patties, in a high-end dining room with huge color-changing cloud pendants, glazed tiles and gold chain-link details.
Exotic array of flavors from around the world.
Egusi soup dumplings stuffed with black sea bass and served with Nigerian red stew and pickled pearl onions; curried goat patties with green seasoning aioli and mango chutney; braised oxtails with rice and peas, Thumbelina carrots and chayote squash and the seafood boil with king crab, middleneck clams, black bass and andouille in a vivid orange broth.
