Six By Nico Manchester, 60 Spring Gardens, Manchester, M2 2BQ – Visit Now
Ladies and gentlemen, the Circus has come to town as Six By Nico unveil their latest themed tasting menu set menu. A welcome return to the scene, their post-COVID debut brings playful takes on classic carnival foods from your childhood to your plate.
Sweet and salty memories are brought to life as creative dishes that we have come to expect from head chef Nico Simeone, from their starter of “Waffles & Ice Cream” to an aptly named dish of “The Illusionist”. There is more than meets the eye in each dish, with as much variation between plates as there is between acts in a circus show.
Prepare for the comeback performance of 2021: The Circus is in town
What menu would be complete though without matching wines to complement each act? Look forward to more regions and varieties than an animal tamer could shake a stick at. Fruity notes appear to be dominating the list for these next six weeks, with plenty of raspberry, strawberry and cranberry notes present amongst the pairings, along with vanilla and floral highlights.
Despite the rollercoaster of a year we have had though, walking into Six By Nico makes it feel as though nothing has changed. Their new menu is aptly named as you watch them masterfully spin plates, work their magic with ingredients that will leave you in awe and give you the experience that we have been waiting with bated breath for since doors closed across the country.
Though every precaution is taken in accordance with guidelines, your seat at the table is like a seat in a circus tent, providing a two-hour window of solace from the outside world. DIY home-kits for a year may have sufficed for the time being, but likely they did not satisfy your itch for culinary creations that we all crave. So get your ticket for the evening show you deserve and prepare for the comeback performance of 2021. The Circus is in town and the show has begun.
