Brunch Commences at Tico; Chocolate & Milkshakes Pop Up in the North End

Plus, the next installment of spit-roasted pork at M.C. Spiedo.


BACK BAY — Tico wants to be your new favorite brunch spot: During the kickoff party this Saturday, March 14, order a Tico bowl (the restaurant's take on a tiki bowl) and have a complimentary small plate sent to your table. Beyond the booze, the brunch menu includes Mexican fried chicken and Nutella-stuffed French toast, and singer-songwriter Louie Bello will entertain. Brunch begins at 11 a.m. and reservations are encouraged; call 617-351-0400 to make yours. [Press Release]

SEAPORT DISTRICT — This week's porchetta offering from M.C. Spiedo is served with red onion agrodolce. As part of the new Suckling Pig Saturday series, executive chef Michael Sutton is spit-roasting a pig each week, which is then carved and plated tableside. To reserve your space, call the restaurant at 617-476-5606. [Press Release]

NORTH END — From 1 to 3 p.m. on Saturday, bounce around the North End to get your chocolate fix during Meet The Makers & Milkshake Pop Up.
