Six by Nico restaurants in Glasgow and Edinburgh will reopen their doors on Friday July 17th, and have today, 30 June, announced the latest menu theme - The Chippie 2.0.
The restaurants, which serve a tasting menu that changes ever six weeks, are owned and run by chef Nico Simeone - who is currently starring in his own BBC Scotland programme.
The menu, which will run from 17 July, is a popular take on fish and chip shop classics, and a hark back to the early days of the concept, which launched in Glasgow in 2017.
Items on the menu have been creatively re-imagined, with contemporary twists, to give customers old and new a fun and unexpected dining experience.
Dishes on The Chippie 2.0 menu include; Chips & Cheese (Parmesan Espuma & Crisp / Curry Oil / Brandade Croquette / Vinegar Powder / Brown Sauce); Scrabster Monkfish (Cheek / Dill Emulsion / Gribiche / Peas / Beurre Blanc) and Steak Pie (Speyside Beef Shin / Burnt Onion Ketchup / Mushroom Duxelle / ‘Meaty Salsa’).
These are followed by Fish Supper (Shetland Cod / Pickled Mussels / Confit Fennel / Samphire / Beer Emulsion; Smoked Sausage (Trio of Pork / Apple / Black Pudding / Salt Baked Celeriac / Choucroute) and finally, back by popular demand, Deep Fried Mars Bar for dessert (Chocolate Pave / Blood Orange Sorbet / Cocoa Nib).
As always, there will also be a vegetarian option available for each course.
Chef Nico Simeone said; “The Chippie was originally designed to bring a sense of fun & nostalgia, and when talking to our team and Six by Nico community about which menu we wanted to re-open with, it was clear we wanted to bring those feelings back.
"When we launched our restaurants in Glasgow and Edinburgh, The Chippie was hugely popular so not only does this mean our existing customers get the opportunity to experience a new version, but it gives us the chance to share it with even more people the second time around”.
The restaurants will re-open with a reduced capacity and for the first time ever, Six by Nico Finnieston, Southside and Edinburgh will be open on Mondays.
Glasgow Finnieston will welcome up to 24 guests, Glasgow Southside 22 guests and Edinburgh City 42 guests in one sitting, and this will be monitored continuously.
Bookings are being taken now, here.
