Chef Nico Simone is a man that knows how to treat Londoners mean but kept 'em v. keen. He gave his culinary genius to five other UK cities before the Capital got a taste. But now the wait is over and good news: It's sixy time, London.
The76-cover restaurant on Charlotte Street is peppered with bad-ass industrial-meets-modern touches. Get comfy on the leather benches beneath ultra-cool filament lightbulbs & exposed steel beams. Bathe in the sexy glow of the pass stretching across the dining room. This place has hot fifth date written all over it.
It's all in the numbers here. One imaginative theme, six epic courses and only six weeks to try it before the next one rolls into town. Dishes inspired by the snow-capped Alps; a menu that'll take you down the Wonderland rabbit hole; plates packed with childhood nostalgia. He's made 'em all. The opening of the London joint? An ode to the Great British Chippie. What a debut. From a next-level Steak Pie to an extraordinary ‘Fish Supper’ with not a limp chip in sight, it's six courses of success. He's tipped his chef's hat to his Glaswegian roots with the pud. Never had a chip-shop battered Mars Bar before? Buckle in lads, sh*ts about to get real.
For all of the creativity and imagination of the cooking, your bank account won't even feel a pinch. The entire 6-course menu will set you back just £35 per head, and each dish comes with an optional wine pairing, but at £33pp for the privilege, it's a no brainer. We'll see ya again in 6 weeks, Nico.
