Six by Nico, brainchild of renowned Scottish-Italian chef Nico Simeone, officially opens its doors in Canary Wharf, August 9th. The new restaurant is the largest site to date and foodies will be treated to a completely new six course menu every six weeks with the first concept themed around the British chip shop.
The former Canary Wharf office block on Chancellor Passage has been transformed into a new flagship Six by Nico restaurant and bar. Timeless neutrals such as ivory, taupe, black, sea green, and shades of grey and white are among the colours included into the interior design matched with dark furnishings and fixtures to create a cool, brighter and airy dining space. The restaurant interior boasts a minimal design, contrasted by grand marble fixtures and fittings with atmospheric mood lighting.
The 100 cover restaurant and 40 cover cocktail bar area features include an open kitchen and stylish, contemporary artwork inspired by historical maps of London with layers of patterns, injection of greenery and natures bold colour palette.
‘The Chippie’ will kick-start the series of evolving concepts, with flavours of the traditional fish and chip shop taking centre stage on the menu. Highlights include the first course of chips and cheese with parmesan espuma, curry oil and emulsion and crisp potato terrine along with Nico’s unique take on the traditional scampi which sees Scrabster Monkfish Cheek, dill emulsion, gribiche, peas and beurre blanc swiftly followed by a Speyside beef shin steak pie accompanied by burnt onion ketchup, mushroom duxelles and a meaty salsa. To conclude, diners will enjoy a deep fried mars bar accompanied by an Irn Bru sorbet and chocolate soil.
Six by Nico offers a fresh and accessible dining experience with a six course tasting menu that changes every six weeks. Each new menu is inspired by anything from memories, concepts, places and locations – all designed by Scottish-Italian Nico, who draws on his heritage to create innovative new dishes.
