Talented chef Nico Simeone has opened his first London restaurant on Fitzrovia’s Charlotte Street, Six by Nico London.
Pioneering a revolving culinary hub, Six by Nico re-invents the dining experience with an entirely new six-course tasting menu every six weeks which is fuelled by places, memories and ideas. Inspired by the chef’s Scottish Italian heritage, the first tasting menu is called “The Chippie” and it evokes the classic British chip shop with updated flavour profiles and pairings.
This is the first London project from Nico Simeone and his seventh opening in the UK. Nico’s unique culinary narrative was first born in his native Glasgow and has expanded at a dynamic pace with sister restaurants now in Edinburgh, Belfast, Manchester and Liverpool. Nico prepares elevated food in a format that is sophisticated and creative yet diners still find the comforting associations of more traditional interpretations.
Nico’s first tasting menu brings his take on the classic British fish and chip shop with a nostalgic six course tasting menu all for £35. Guests enjoy delights such as: Scrabster Monkfish cheek on a bed of wild garlic emulsion, gribiche, peas and beurre blanc, “Steak Pie” with shredded Speyside beef shin, burnt onion ketchup, mushroom duxelle and ‘meaty salsa’, ‘Fish Supper’ of Shetland cod atop confit fennel, samphire beer emulsion and pickled mussels and of course, the signature Deep fried mars bar with Caramelia, chocolate mousse, blood orange sorbet and cocoa nib. Expertly selected wine pairings sourced from Europe are available alongside the menu priced at £33 per person or guests can choose from the extensive drinks list. Nico’s accessible concept pairs upscale food sourcing, preparation, and presentation with approachable pricing and stylish charm.
Chef Nico Simeone said, "We are very excited to open Six by Nico London. At a time when London is starting to emerge from this horrific crisis, we are determined to be amongst the first of the new places that make this city such a great place to visit and look forward to welcoming our customers safely very soon.” Aficionados and casual diners are welcomed back to the exciting and creative London dining scene and the cuisine of Six by Nico.
