During 2010, Rocca was ready for a shake up with Top Chef finalist, Tiffani Faison, leading the way. Her style & approach was markedly different than the previous chef, and for that matter many chefs in Boston. The new menu was an exciting change for Rocca. In an interview with the Boston Globe Faison said, the closure was a shock to those who worked there, as the restaurant had been busier than ever, with strong operating numbers. What's next for Faison, it seems like she will most likely open her own place in Boston - a hint that she may have won the Top Chef All Stars Season 8. When? Where? Stayed tuned. Though we do not know why Rocca closed or what will happen to the space, we do know we will miss it & summer dinners on the patio.
