So if you haven’t yet guessed from my Instagram, I love Nico!
…by that I mean his restaurants and his food…
But who am I kidding the man is a genius!
If you haven’t already read all about when I first fell in love with Nico here…otherwise let me tell you all about the time I cemented my love for him!
Six by Nico which is situated in the heart of Finnieston – will be home to a series of carefully curated and constantly evolving restaurant concepts.
Each six weeks, Nico and his team serve a brand new six-course tasting-menu – each one themed upon a different place or memory – I tried their first, The Chippy
CHIPS & CHEESE
Speyside beef shin, onion choucroute and brioche
Shetland cod with sea vegetable, pickled mussels and taramasalata
Ayrshire pork with black pudding, apple and celeriac
DEEP FRIED MARS BAR
Salted caramel, chocolate nougat, malt parfait
Needless to say we had a fantastic evening, the food as usual was delicious.
In comparison to his first restaurant, 111 by Nico, Six by Nico is almost the complete opposite. You don’t feel as if you have the place to yourself. The whole restaurant is alive and you can watch as the dishes get prepared on the TV screens hanging on the wall which in turn bounce off the mirrors on the opposite side of the room. So, no matter where you are sitting you can see what is taking place.
Would we go back?
Yes – in a heart beat.
Did we prefer it over 111 by Nico?
To be honest they are completely different restaurants achieving to completely different things. Although I will always be intrigued every six weeks by, Six by Nico, 111 will always have my heart!
