The rumors are true: construction is underway for Michael Schlow’s newest restaurant venture, Tico, reports Zagat Buzz. Although an American restaurant at its core, the dishes are gently influenced by the celebrity chef’s travels through Spain, Mexico, and Latin America, Schlow’s spokesperson Brianne Carmody-Perea tells Grub Street. The culinary addition to the Back Bay will occupy the old Cottonwood Cafe location at 222 Berkeley Street. Looks like 2011 just got its first major opening to obsess over.
