A Culinary Tour of the Big Apple: Six by Nico’s New York Inspired Six-Course Tasting Menu

Step into the bustling streets of New York City without leaving London at Six by Nico, where Chef Nico Simeone’s latest creation promises to transport diners to the city that never sleeps. Drawing inspiration from the vibrant and diverse food scene of the Big Apple, the New York six-course tasting menu is a celebration of iconic flavours and beloved dishes, precisely crafted to dazzle the senses and ignite the palette.

Chef Nico Simeone’s journey to New York City was not merely a culinary excursion but a pilgrimage to uncover the soul of the city’s gastronomic landscape. Immersed in the sights, sounds, and flavours of NYC, Chef Nico and his executive chef team embarked on a tasting tour, discovering hidden culinary gems and iconic eateries that would inspire their latest epicurean masterpiece.

The result? A menu that captures the essence of New York City’s culinary identity, paying homage to its diverse neighbourhoods, storied institutions, and beloved dishes. Priced at an accessible £50 per person, with an optional wine pairing for £35, Six by Nico’s New York tasting menu offers an unparalleled dining experience that delivers exceptional value without compromising on quality or creativity.

The journey begins with the “New Yorker Slice,” a playful interpretation of the classic pepperoni pizza inspired by Joe’s Pizza in Greenwich Village. Featuring a luscious pepperoni ragù, panzanella and pecorino foam, this dish is a tantalizing tribute to the quintessential New York slice, elevated to new heights of culinary artistry.

Next up is the “B.E.C,” a nod to the beloved breakfast sandwich found at Daily Provisions in Union Square. Crispy potato rosti, smoked bacon belly, and a confit egg yolk come together in perfect harmony, accented by tangy trapanese hot sauce and velvety parmesan beurre blanc. It’s a symphony of flavours that captures the essence of a New York morning in every bite.

For those craving a taste of the Lower East Side, the “Pastrami Sandwich” is a must-try. Featuring tender ox pastrami, tangy sauerkraut, and zesty Frenchies mustard, this dish pays homage to the legendary Katz’s Deli and Shelsky’s, delivering a satisfyingly savoury experience that will leave you craving more.

But the journey doesn’t stop there. From the iconic “Everything Bagel” reimagined with grenobloise coalfish and salt-baked celeriac to the indulgent “Double Chicken Please” featuring buttermilk chicken and jalapeno ketchup inspired by Bowery’s own Double Chicken Please, each dish is a testament to Chef Nico’s culinary prowess and his unwavering commitment to innovation and excellence.

And of course, no visit to the Big Apple would be complete without a slice of pie. The “New Yorker Apple Pie” is a decadent finale that brings together baked apple cream, New York cheesecake, and indulgent dulce de leche, putting a modern twist on iconic desserts you’ll find in Lower Manhattan and the Bowery.

But hurry – the New York six-course tasting menu will only be available at Six by Nico restaurants across the UK and Ireland until Sunday 19 May 2024. Don’t miss your chance to take your senses on a trip to the delicious heart of New York City, where every bite tells a story and every dish is a masterpiece in its own right.
