Taking over the Cathedral Quarter food scene one tasting menu at a time, the team at Six by Nico are ready to release their third menu to Belfast and beyond. Following a recent visit to Barcelona, Chef Nico Simeone and his team return from their Catalonian adventures to the kitchens at Six by Nico restaurants in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Belfast to share with you their love for Catalonia, it’s culture and of course, its cuisine.
Catalonia, the northeastern province of Spain, has a long, deep pedigree for fine food created from its natural ingredients. This enclave between the Mediterranean and Pyrenees is home to Barcelona – a city enriched with charming food culture. Catalan food tends to be simple, seasonal and unpretentious. Its cuisine is the richest, most complex and sophisticated of Spain. Fish and seafood dishes are magisterial and its food culture is known worldwide for letting good quality ingredients do the talking.
Having strolled around the charming Gracia neighbourhood tasting delights such as Iberian ham, churros and meatballs to sampling fresh fish from the famous ‘Mercado de La Boqueria’ markets, Chef Nico will bring flavours of Catalonia to his kitchens with his latest menu concept.
The latest menu marks the first time that all three sites – Glasgow, Edinburgh and Belfast – will cook the same menu theme. The current menu for Six by Nico‘s rotating culinary adventure on Argyle Street in Glasgow as well as Hanover Street in Edinburgh is inspired by ‘Orient Express’. This theme will continue to run until Sunday, May 26th 2019. As recently reviewed by The Style Edit, Belfast guests will continue to enjoy the current theme, ‘Childhood’ which will end on Sunday 26th May 2019.
From Tuesday 28th May – Sunday 7th July 2019 guests dining at Six by Nico restaurants in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Belfast will journey through Catalan gastronomy with a six-course tasting menu inspired by the unique and independent food culture of the famous Spanish region.
The new six-course tasting menu includes Bombas – Jamon Bombas, Smoked Chilli Compote, Aioli; Heirloom Tomato – Gilda olive puree, Toasted grains, Goats Curd, Tomato Gazpacho; Paella – Crisp Mussels, Tiger Prawn, Saffron & Orange Emulsion, Pickled Fennel; Coley Barbecoa – Calcot Onions, Pickled Green Grapes, Ajo Blanco, Mojo Verde; Pork Cheek- Morcilla, Sobrasada, White Bean, Spiced Aubergine, Padron Pepper and finally for dessert Creme Catalan– Almond Arlette, Orange Creme Fraiche and Fennel Pollen Nougatine.
“Catalonia has a reputation for producing some of Spain’s finest cuisine. The region produces a variety of fresh, high-quality seafood, meat, poultry, game, fruit and vegetables and on a recent trip, our team meet the proud people behind the food, heard some fascinating stories, and experienced age-old Catalonian traditions.” – Chef Nico Simeone
