Six By Nico restaurant announces theme for new six course menu – and it’s all about Mexico


New restaurant Six By Nico, which creates a brand new menu every six weeks, has seen great success with its first chippy tea themed menu since opening on Spring Gardens last month.

Today, chef Nico Simeone’s restaurant has announced that the next menu, starting on 20th August, will be Mexican themed. 

Inspired by the country’s extensive and sophisticated culinary culture, the ‘Mexico’ menu aims to transport diners from the hazy cactus deserts of Tijuana to the vibrant, bustling streets of Mexico City with each course.

The new tasting menu hopes to combine elements of both contemporary Mexican street food and ancient culinary classics to provide guests with a taste of the country’s flavourful history.

The new six course tasting menu, priced at £29, starts with an amuse bouche lettuce, lime leaf and avocado gazpacho with pico de gallo salsa. It will be followed by blow torched mackerel with watermelon, green cilantro taco, and whipped creme fraiche.

The next course is fresh burrata with green chilli salsa verde, cucumber ketchup, garden herbs and green tomato tostada, followed by sea bass with white bean hash, chorizo, pumpkin, and squid ink and lemon emulsion.

The final main is pork belly with barbecued elote, crispy fried cornichon and roasted quince. 

Dessert is a chocolate cremeux with banana ice cream, vanilla and agave gel, candied hazelnuts, chocolate taco and banana crisp.

There will also be the option for diners to add additional snacks, with choices including a hard shell chicken leg or jackfruit taco with guacamole, pico de gallo salsa, spiced emulsion and Gordal olives, at £5 per person. 

“I think our Mexico themed tasting menu gives guests the opportunity to try different colours, textures and flavours that they may not have discovered before,” said chef Nico.

“Mexican food is fantastic with a lot of flair, colours and we aim to offer a diverse and delicious range of dishes that bring the culture and history of the country all together in one bite.

“We want to bring to life our interpretations of contemporary Mexican cooking. People these days are much more familiar with Mexican dishes.

“Al pastor, quesadillas, mole, carnitas, barbacoa, chipotle and taco are all part of our culinary vocabulary now and Six by Nico are excited to introduce our guests to some thrilling Mexican inspired dishes.”

Diners can book a table now for ‘Mexico’ from 20th August until 29th September. The menu is £29 per person for six courses, with the option to enjoy a drinks pairing for an additional £26. There is a vegetarian alternative available for every course.
