At Tatiana, his new home
housed out of the David Geffen Hall in Lincoln Center, Onwuachi serves tributes to the melting pot of the current culinary scene. Honoring his Bronx he serves an inspired take on chopped cheese buns found in bodegas everywhere. Building on his Afro-Caribbean cuisine, he's serving dishes where he is "getting playful again," and "drawing from Jamaican bakeries…from Chinese takeout spots."
Here at Tatiana, Onwuachi is allowed to do what he does best: mix cultures and swap histories to create a new culinary vision painstakingly made from the legacy of the past. In this way, he represents the heart of New York City as a melting pot of cultural exchanges, histories, and shared stories. Putting it in his own words, his food is "very indicative of New York" and how "New York cuisine is not something you could put a finger on…there's so much vibrancy —especially when you reach the boroughs."
