Tico is a lively, slightly upscale Latin spot in Back Bay that does big business after work, when a lot of people who work for insurance companies suddenly need a lot of margaritas. You’re not going to find particularly outstanding tacos and small plates here, but everything is competently made, and, surprisingly, the burger is actually one of the best in the city.
