Description: In the Spring of 1988 on the corner of Pacific and Spencer in Wildwood New Jersey, Letitia Negro opened a ten table restaurant known for "Home Cooking". The $9.95 three course price fix menu featured family favorites and "Made from the heart" cuisine. The food, like its Restaurant School graduate chef/owner, was genuine, unique and unforgettable. The end of Tisha's Home Cooking came early in the 1990's, but in turn became the beginning of Tisha's Fine Dining in Cape May. In 1995, Paul Negro, son of Letitia, and his wife Jennifer continued the tradition here in Cape May. Paul took what he learned from his mother, added his own talent and love for food, and established a great following. Some things have changed in the city and the restaurant has now moved from the solarium building on the beach to its new home on the Washington Street Mall. No matter where they are Paul and Jennifer will proudly continue the tradition of love and passion for food and people in honor of Tisha, an amazing friend, mother and chef.

“Good Food - Bad Wine List”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

Liked the food - presently well
Menu limited
Locals knew enough to bring their own wine - only Cape May wines were on the list and even those weren't always available.

“Unplanned surprise”
Reviewed 25 April 2014 via mobile

We drove to cape may from mahwah NJ, for the day to see some dolphins and whales.
Did not plan to have dinner there but after reading the reviews we had to stop for her award winning clam chowder.

It was, in a word, perfect.
