Six by Nico to reopen with circus themed menu

The new dishes will showcase the flavours of upscale carnival food, says the restaurant - and there's even candy floss

Six by Nico will reopen its Spring Gardens restaurant on Monday 17th May with a brand new six-course menu.

It’s the first theme introduced since restaurant sites closed in December 2020. 

Inspired by the circus, the new dishes will showcase the flavours of upscale carnival food, says the restaurant.

If your favorite memories consist of Ferris wheels and fried dough, The Circus menu could be right up your street this Spring.

The menu starts with ‘Waffles & Ice Cream’: chicken liver parfait with compressed peach and potato crisp, followed by ‘Candy Butchers’: beef carpaccio with burger sauce, aged Parmesan and pickled cucumber.

Next it’s ‘The Illusionist’: chicken ballotine with crushed artichoke, brown shrimp and caper and raisin puree, followed by ‘A-Crab-atics’: sole with baby courgette, bergamot gel, crab tortellini and bisque.

The final main is ‘The Greatest Show’: smoked flat iron with wild garlic, black truffle emulsion and ox cheek pasty. 

The final act ends on a sweet note with ‘The Grand Finale’: peanut butter parfait with rhubarb compote, blood orange and candy floss. 

There’s also a six-course vegetarian alternative, whcih includes goats cheese mousse, beetroot tartare and herb gnocchi.

“Who amongst us doesn’t have fond memories of a visit to the circus when we were young?” says chef Nico Simeone about the new menu.

“The circus is a fascinating visual and our re-opening menu is full with colorful unpretentious, playful dishes.

“Everybody needs a little extra excitement right now and our team had lots of fun developing and creating this theme as we prepare to reopen our Six by Nico restaurants across the country.”

The Circus will run from Monday 17th May – Sunday 27th June 2021 at Six by Nico Manchester. Open from midday, Monday through to Sunday, each six-course menu will be available from noon to late. The menu will be priced from £32 per person with the option to add on a wine pairing for an additional £26. You can book here.
