Schlow Burger Comes to Tico Late at Night, Along With Peruvian and Japanese Food

The Back Bay restaurant is pushing its boundaries after 10 p.m.


Have you continued to dream about Michael Schlow's burger since Radius closed? It has popped up a few times at special events since then, but after launching this Friday, February 12, it will be available every Thursday through Saturday from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. at Schlow's Latin American-inspired restaurant in Back Bay, Tico. It costs $19.

The new late-night menu, dubbed Nikkei, is aimed at fusing Peruvian and Japanese flavors, with dishes like deviled eggs with uni, chiles, and tempura bits; shrimp and octopus "sunonmo" with tigre de leche; and short rib gyoza with panca, sesame, and toasted onion. And then there's that burger, made with cheddar, crispy onions, and horseradish-black pepper sauce.

During the day, Tico's menu features a variety of ceviches, tacos, entrees cooked a la plancha, and small plates, such as a duck confit quesadilla; a mac and cheese with serrano ham and manchego; and risotto with clams and huitlacoche. There's also a burger (made with BLT salsa, jack cheese, and chipotle), but it's not the burger.

Tico also has a substantial tequila selection.

Food is served until 10 p.m. Monday through Wednesday and now 1 a.m. Thursday through Saturday, but the bar stays open until 2 a.m. every night (except Sunday, when the restaurant is closed).
