If you’d have told us that you can get an experimental six-course tasting menu for £35 in Central London a year ago, we’d have laughed in your face. Now you might be the one laughing because Scottish chef Nico Simeone (who already has restaurants in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Belfast, Manchester and Liverpool – sorry, but how did they get them first?) opened Six by Nico in London doing just that. The best part about this is that the food is themed around a place or an idea (New York, Chippie and Childhood have all been past themes) that changes every six weeks. The Chippie theme had some creative replicas of old school faves, like “chips and cheese”, a salt cod croquette with parmesan foam, brown sauce and vinegar powder; “scampi”, made with monkfish cheek, gribiche and beurre blanc; and mini steak pie made with beef shin and served with a burnt onion ketchup. For an extra £33 there’s the option to add on a wine pairing, or £5 extra for a couple of snacks pre-meal (though one of these to share between two is more than enough). But if you’re trying to keep it good-value, you really can’t go wrong with the affordable set menu cost, especially if you’re out to impress a date and want to look flasher than you actually are.
