Tico (A New Michael Schlow Restaurant) Is Coming to Boston
It looks like a well-known Boston chef and restaurant owner is going to be opening a new dining spot in the city.
According to the Boston edition of Zagat Buzz, Michael Schlow is planning to open Tico, a new restaurant that looks like it may feature Central American cuisine. [October 4 update: A new post by Zagat Buzz indicates that Tico will be a dining spot with Latin American and Mexican influences. An earlier rumor of Tico opening in the Seaport District can be disregarded, as Zagat Buzz mentions that Tico will open in the Back Bay where the Cottonwood Cafe had been until closing early this summer. Expect an early 2011 opening for this restaurant. The address for the upcoming Tico will be: Tico, 222 Berkeley Street, Boston, MA, 02116.]
[October 15 update: According to Boston Herald, Tico will be offering both lunch and dinner, with the lunch menu including such items salads, tacos, and sandwiches, and the dinner menu including snacks and small plates.]
[February 7, 2011 update: According to UrbanDaddy, Tico is going to be opening this Wednesday (February 9).]
