Nico’s latest tasting menu, will take guests on a journey to the coastal towns and sweeping beaches of this beautiful Spanish region
The new menu will transport guests to the beautiful Spanish region of Catalonia and the culture and vibrant tastes of this historic region, from Barcelona to Girona, and everything in between.
Art and creativity in the kitchen lie at the heart of the Catalan culture and is therefore an essential element of Six by Nico’s new tasting menu, which not only draws inspiration from the region’s classic dishes and cooking techniques, but also celebrates the region’s most prolific figures, from artists, to architects and fellow chefs. Each dish on the new menu reflects the unique heritage of this captivating destination.
The new six-course offering highlights a range of iconic dishes including an amuse bouche of Patatas Bravas, a first starter celebrating Gaudi of chicken arrollado, hen of the woods, black garlic, hazelnut pesto, bergamot, lovage and mustactel.
The second starter, named El Bulli in honour of the famous restaurant and chef Ferran Adrià, is a Pan Con Tomate with heirloom tomato, extra virgin olive oil and smoked salt.
For the fish course, there is Arroz Negro – the classic rice dish typical of the region with black pollock, pickled mussel, black rice cake, saffron emulsion, courgette and shellfish cappuccino and for the main course Pork Barbacoa, featuring the belly and cheek of pork, sobrasada, white bean ragú and red pepper esquitxat.
End withCrema Catalan of burnt vanilla crème, poached prune and honey and fennel seed.
The menu is priced at £48 per person with the option to enjoy a selected wine and specialist drinks pairing for an additional £35 at each restaurant. As always, there is a vegetarian alternative available for every course, with alternatives including a Paella Blanco with courgette and fino sherry cappuccino and a Saffron tortilla with tetilla cheese, roasted garlic emulsion and calcot onions.
Diners can book a table now to discover the ‘Catalonia’ food experience, which will run all day for six weeks from 25th September to 5th November.
