For his newest theme for Six By Nico, chef Nico Simeone is inviting the public to vote on the six dishes they enjoyed the most in 2018 to create a six-course tasting menu that will include the top picks of the year.

The hugely popular restaurant, which has venues in Glasgow and Edinburgh is giving its customers the chance to shape the newest menu.

The team at Six By Nico have served up some memorable dishes over the past 12 months with influences coming from across the globe and with the launch of ‘Best of 2018’, they want to recreate the most memorable, most enjoyable and most popular dishes for the New Year’s first theme, which will be served up from Tuesday 22nd January – Sunday 3rd March 2019.

Over the next ten days, Six By Nico will be running polls across their social media channels which will give guests the opportunity to select their highlights from the year’s previous menu concepts and themes.

Voting is now open and guests  can choose from:

Chips & Cheese (The Chippie: Edinburgh) vs Arancini Tricolore (Sicily) for Course 1

Lamb Belly (Middle East) vs Buffalo Chicken (New York) for the 2nd course

Pappardelle Ragu (Sicily) vs Scampi (The Chippie: Edinburgh) for Course 3

Cod Fish Supper (The Chippie: Edinburgh) vs Sea Bream (Vietnamese Street Food) as their options for Course 4

Duck Duck Goose (Childhood 2.0) v.s. Pork Cheek Barbacoa (Mexico) for the 5th

Big Apple (New York) v.s. Limone Siciliano (Sicily) for the 6th.

Chef Nico Simeone said: “A public vote has been launched that will see our loyal customers revisit some of their favourite dishes at Six by Nico. We are always seeking to evolve and improve the dining experience and our guest’s feedback plays a major role in helping us do just that.

“Therefore, we thought it was only right that we left our first menu concept of 2019 in the hands of those who dine frequently with us.”

Diners can book a table now for ‘Best of 2018’. Open from midday, Tuesday through to Sunday on Hanover Street in Edinburgh and in Finnieston in Glasgow each six-course menu will be available from noon to night.

The menu is priced at £28 per person with the option to enjoy an expertly selected wine and specialist drinks pairing for an additional £25 at each restaurant. As ever, there is a vegetarian alternative available for every course, as well as snack sides.

Nico added: “It is fascinating to uncover what food memories stay with guests after they visit our restaurants and with this theme kicking off 2019’s concepts we are able to serve up something special for those who love us most.”

• Voting is now open on their Instagram pages @sixbynico and on their Facebook account.
