A 10-course dinner from a blank menu where you need to guess your dishes? You can count us in! Six By Nico on Byres Road is asking diners to put all their trust in the chefs with the creative three-hour dining experience, Trust.
Expect the unexpected at the limited edition menu, where guests have no idea what they have coming. Everything from food to drinks is a surprise, only to be revealed after visitors have tried their course. Plus, the chef will also offer the perfect wine pairing for those who choose a drink pairing with the menu. The beautifully balanced dishes will leave guests wanting more while appreciating the true value of creativity in cooking.
The dishes are then revealed by the staff, who seem to take great pleasure in hearing all of the guest’s (sometimes wild) guesses. However, fear not, for dietary requirements are always adhered to. Whether visitors are vegetarian, vegan, gluten or dairy intolerant, the chefs have got them covered. Even if they particularly dislike the taste of something, guests can always speak up before starting the experience.
Secret Glasgow got the chance to try this out first-hand, fully immersing ourselves in the experience. Each dish came out better than the one before, making us second-guess our taste buds in the best way possible. At one point, smoked tomatoes tasted like chorizo, proving to expect the unexpected. Plus, it’s safe to say the experience is well-received in Glasgow as drinks are aplenty, with seven drinks in total for the ten courses.
Six By Nico on Byres Road is the brand’s third Glasgow restaurant conveniently situated in the West End. The restaurant offers a carefully curated, constantly evolving tasting menu that normally involves six courses. The concept invites guests to learn first-hand how food can tell an elaborate story by using ever-changing tasting experiences, instead of words.
Six By Nico is run by Nico Simeone, a Glasgow-born chef to an Italian family. After growing up in a Mediterranean foodie background, Chef’s earliest memories are helping his mother in the kitchen and large family meals around the table. Being in the restaurant business, Nico’s career led him to own eleven restaurants around Scotland, England and Ireland, as well as a BBC Scotland series Nico’s Menu Mission.
The Trust Menu is only available Sundays and Mondays, and you can book your table on the Six By Nico website.
