Retro Reborn: A return to 1970’s food at Six by Nico
We had Mexico (Click here to read our review) and the next menu up for Six by Nico embraces the 1970’s. My fave decade for food.
So chill the Babycham and get ready for some retro food.
The new six course tasting menu includes:
Spam & Mash: Potato Espuma, Smoked Ham Hough, Pickled Mustard Seed;
Prawn Cocktail: Tiger Prawn, Baby Gem Ketchup, Tomato, Shellfish Marie Rose;
Chicken Kiev: Black Garlic Emulsion, Pea Pesto, Rainbow Radish;
Salmon Tikka Marsala: Onion Bhaji, Caramelised Cauliflower, Lime Gel;
Duck A L’Orange: Confit Duck, Aromatic Carrot, Orange Puree.
It wouldn’t be a proper 1970’s menu without a trifle – Summer Berries, Saffron, Almond Sponge and Whipped Creme Friache.
Chef Nico Simeone said:
“People ate the most bizarre stuff in the ’70s and we want to create incredible new dishes that would define the decade. It was the era of the showboat dinner party when meals didn’t just taste out of this world, they looked out of this world too.”
Diners can book a table now for ‘The 70’s’. Open from midday, Monday to Sunday throughout August in Edinburgh and Tuesday – Sunday in July/September dates and at the Glasgow location, each six-course menu will be available from noon to night.
‘The 1970’s’ will run from Tuesday 7th August until Sunday 16th September 2018.
The menu will be priced from £28 per person in Glasgow and Edinburgh with the option to enjoy an expertly selected wine and specialist drinks pairing for an additional £25 at each restaurant. There is a vegetarian alternative available for every course, as well as retro snacks.
