Whats Happening


ABOUT :

The name 'TICO' nods to Costa Rica. But it is an American food with a Latin American influence.
Tico is a place that doesn't take itself too seriously. It has a fun, sexy atmosphere, delicious and unpretentious food, amazing cocktails, cold beer, lots of tequila (over 85 types) and cool music.
Behind every dish hovers a short story. For instance, the restaurant's accessory for brick-pressed chicken? It evolved from a trip The Owner/Chef Michael Schlow and fellow top chef Mario Batali took to Spain, where their mission was to sample the Michelin three-stars. Between their fancy meals, however, the chefs repeatedly sought out the specialty of a humble roadside kitchen in Torrent: escalivada, a rustic mix of peppers, eggplant, onions and anchovies eaten simply with grilled bread.
