Dan is from New York and pairing his love of food and classical training to Ticha’s understanding of the different flavors of Latin America and the Caribbean have made Tierra the success that it is today.In addition to the seasonal menu, Dan and Ticha also celebrate the individual country by having five to six “National Day Weeks” each year when in addition to the regular menu a single country is featured in a three course prix fix of truly authentic recipes. These menus are very popular because customers have a rare opportunity to enjoy what would be a home cooked meal in the country featured and at a reasonable price.
