Chef-Restaurateur Michael Schlow (Radius, Via Matta, Alta Strada) continues to expand the culinary horizons of Boston with his newest restaurant, Tico. This rustic Spanish casita-style restaurant (think multi-color mosaic walls, dark wooden furniture, and gilded light fixtures) sets the mood for a funky menu steered by Chef Joshua Smith. With riffs on blood sausage and updates on bar grub, Smith takes his classic French background and applies it to creative, laissez-faire Mexican cuisine. But Tico is more than a neighborhood taco joint (although the tacos are addictive)—Smith combines uplifting flavors with thoughtful condiments, complex textures, and inventive flavor combinations to create a menu that is as fun as it is fulfilling.
