Once upon a time from Six by Nico
In many fairy tales, food plays a magical role and Six by Nico's latest six course menu takes those tales as inspiration for an imaginative feast. 'Once Upon a Time' will take guests on a journey with Paddington in London, across the dark and mysterious forest that surrounds the Beast's Castle and into the river with the Ugly Duckling.
Our favourite childhood fairy tales certainly exert a cultural influence on all of us and Nico’s menu taps into this with a menu that runs from Monday 31st January - Sunday 13th March 2022.
The magical six course menu includes OLIVER TWIST - PLEASE SIR CAN I HAVE SOME MORE - Confit Potato, Hay Baked Potato Mousseline, Preserved wild Garlic & Pickled Onion; PADDINGTON BEAR MARMALADE - Sourdough bruschetta, Ox Cheek Ragout, Mushroom XO marmalade & Truffle; MATILDA - HEY DIP FACE, HAVE A CARROT! - Whole Baked Tandoori Carrot, Carrot Remoulade, Carrot top Pesto, Saffron Pickled Carrot, Citrus Goats Curd; DANNY, CHAMPION OF THE WORLD, LET'S GO TROUT POACHING - Cured & Torched Loch Etive Sea Trout, Smoked Bone Velouté & Dill dressing, Artichoke & Sea Herbs, Bergamot Gel, Salted cucumber; THE UGLY DUCKLING, THE MOST BEAUTIFUL - Duck, Leg Boulangère with Pickled Walnut, Salsify, Toasted Cereal, Pear & Fig.
The menu hopes to leave guests ‘happy ever after’ with a dessert inspired by BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, THE LAST ROSE PETAL - Mascarpone Creme, Rose, Hibiscus & Rhubarb. As well as vegetarian alternatives, the 'Once Upon a Time' menu offers a Mary Poppins - Spoonful of Sugar Aperitif and Fantastic Mr Fox - Farmer Bunce’s Liver & Doughnuts as a side snack.
Chef Nico Simeone said: "Our 'Once Upon A Time' theme is a gastronomic journey through the enchanting realm of fairy tales and folklore.
