The Weekender

Scotch Eggs, Endless Pancakes and Cycling

The weekend is winning.

Thursday
Tico Brings the Lunch Fury
LATIN LUNCHING

Tico Brings the Lunch Fury

There are those who go through life in the unfortunate situation of being without Crispy Fried Chicken and Buttermilk Dressing Tacos at midday. Luckily, that’s not your fate now that Michael Schlow’s Tico has begun lunch service in the Back Bay. Do think of those poor souls while eating.

Mon-Fri, 11:30am-2:30pm, Tico, 222 Berkeley St, 617-351-0400

Dorchester’s New Bicycle Fantasia
CYCLE-RAMA

Dorchester’s New Bicycle Fantasia

Just yesterday we told you about a revolutionary new AAA-ish service for bikes. But should you be sans wheels, you’ll be happy to know that Dorchester’s new Ashmont Cycles is now open for all your high-end biking (think: Fuji, Linus) needs. Here’s to spring...

Friday
Lunching Like Groundskeeper Willie
SCOTLAND LUNCHYARD

Lunching Like Groundskeeper Willie

To tide you over till St. Patrick’s, the Haven in JP is giving you Scottish afternoons. Which means you can now land their traditional Scottish fare like Sausage Sandwiches and Scotch Eggs (hard-boiled egg wrapped in sausage and deep-fried) at lunch. Call it the Atkins by way of Edinburgh.

Mon-Fri, 11am-2:30pm, The Haven, 2 Perkins St, 617-524-2836

Saturday
Dining on Mother’s Recipes
MAMA’S BOYS

Dining on Mother’s Recipes

A fleet of the city’s top chefs from Dante, Coppa and Sel de la Terre is assembling this Saturday for a humongous family-style dinner, where they’ll each be preparing their mom’s best recipes. Think: home-style goulash, corned beef Reubens and a killer boozy punch. Just like those swing parties in the ’70s.

Like IHOP. Only Way Classier.
CAKE WALK

Like IHOP. Only Way Classier.

As you are undoubtedly aware, National Pancake Week kicks off on Sunday. To celebrate, the Bristol Lounge will be griddling up all-you-can-eat flapjacks for three hours on Saturday morning. Which should prime the pump for National Pork-Belly-Wrapped Hash Brown Week.
