First Six by Six by Nico

Six by Nico have just announced their seventh concept- DISNEY! How excited am I? Ever since the beginning I have loved what the amazing people at Six by Nico have tried to achieve. So hot off the heels of their new release I thought I would recap the first 6 menu concepts-for those who haven’t had the chance to experience them for themselves.
In case you haven’t heard about Six by Nico it is a restaurant in the Finneston area of Glasgow that creates the most amazing food ever. For 6 weeks they offer a 6 course tasting menu for £25 each with a different theme inspired by memory or place. I have been lucky enough to experience every concept so far and really wanted to share them with you.

1. The Chippie

Inspired by a traditional British chip shop ‘The Chippie’ reinvented the simple chips & cheese, scampi, steak pie, special fish, smoked sausage and of course the deep fried mars bar. As this was the first concept I dedicated an entire post to this which you can read here. I didn’t know what to expect but after the first course- which was presented in an espresso cup-I knew amazing food was to follow. I was not disappointed and this sparked my love for the restaurant.

2. Childhood
Take a trip back a few years and enjoy the food you loved as a child…but with a Six by Nico twist of course. After eating this menu ice cream –a chicken liver parfait, egg & soldiers, fish fingers, mac & cheese, hamburgers and viennetta will never be the same. Childhood food done in a more sophisticated and adult way.

3. Picnic
You don’t need to grab a blanket and basket of food and head to a park to enjoy a picnic. Especially in Glasgow where it’s almost never sunny! I just had to go along to Six by Nico and enjoy their picnic menu. Complete with a picnic basket and blanket…yes these are two of the courses the menu includes a scotch egg, sandwich platter, a BBQ and some strawberries and cream. The flavour combinations were quite different and if I am honest it wasn’t my favourite concept but it was still delicious.

4. Route 66

Coming a close second to actually taking a road trip the food inspired by Route 66 was just breath-taking. This iconic stretch of road journeys from Chicago through the Great Plains, Texas, New Mexico and California. Nico and his team really captured the spirit and essence of this highway with food including goat’s cheese tart, mozzarella salad, diner food, brisket, a taco finishing with a lemon tart. Truly inspired!

5. Illusion

All was not what it seemed with the Illusion menu…soil was pork, scallops were chicken and eggs were made from white chocolate. And that is just to name a few of the amazingly spell bounding courses. I think this menu is definitely one of my favourites. Each course was as mysterious as the next. Going down that road of illusion was so exciting.

6. Forest

I love Scotland…it’s where I am from and Nico has just made that love grow and grow with their current menu concept- Forest. Inspired by the Scottish Highlands and the forest this menu takes foraging and wild life and brings it to the plate. The food really captures the atmosphere, smells and tranquillity of the forest. The joy of rainbow trout, pheasant and venison. It’s not too late to book a table for here, if you act quickly! 

So it is probably obvious I absolutely love this restaurant and if you are in the Glasgow area I really urge you to try it. The new concept starts 21st of November but tables are filling up fast because you know everyone loves Disney! I have mine booked already. I seriously cannot wait.
