A World of 'Pure Imagination' at Six by Nico restaurants

20 days AGOAdministrator News & Events

Wanted edible wallpaper and to swim in a chocolate river as a kid? Of course you did! Gene Wilder as the quirky candy man, Willy Wonka, captured the imagination of generations. Now, Six by Nico restaurants will do the very same by bringing childhood confectionery dreams to life in a culinary feast that will even impress Veruca Salt. 
 
 
As a nod to Wilder’s memorable performance, Six by Nico restaurants have created a menu full of sweets and treats to get you reminiscing about everyone's favourite childhood flick, ‘Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory’.
 
Following their inaugural six weeks in Edinburgh celebrating the traditional British ‘Chippie’, Six By Nico has today announced (Wednesday May 2nd) the brand new theme for the hotly anticipated second menu which will run from May 15th - June 24th 2018
 
The restaurant concept that creates a new menu every six weeks has gone through a number of themes since opening their first restaurant site in Glasgow’s Finnieston area last year, from Childhood to Forest and Illusion to Disney but now, for the first time, guests at both city locations will soon be able to enjoy the same menu. 
 
Chef Nico Simeone and his team invite guests to re-live those childhood fantasies by entering into the wonderful world of Roald Dahl's chocolate factory with the Wonka theme menu kicking off at both Six by Nico restaurants in Glasgow and Edinburgh on Tuesday May 15th.
 
The new six course tasting menu includes a Reverse Cheese Board; Duck Sweetie Jar; Beetroot Dib Dab; Cod Blackjack with Shetland squid, Liquorice and Cauliflower; Cornfed Chicken with Chorizo Popcorn, Candied Olive and Mole Poblano Sauce and - of course - a dessert made famous by the movie, 'The Wonka Bar' with Cherry Parfait and Peanut butter Cheesecake.
 
And it wouldn’t be Wonka without unwrapping a golden ticket with six lucky winning tickets to be found inside Nico's Wonka Bar dessert. The six prizewinners will each win a dining experience at either the Glasgow or Edinburgh restaurant so the Six by Nico Wonka ticket search is on!
 
Chef Nico Simeone said:
 
“Let's be honest: when we were younger, we all wanted to live in Willy Wonka's chocolate factory. We wanted to swim in his chocolate river and brave the risks to sample Wonka's Fizzy Lifting Drinks. While we unfortunately don’t have a goose that lays gold chocolate eggs, the team are very excited to create some magical culinary dishes that will provock memories of the iconic movie.” 
 
Diners can book a table now for ‘Wonka’. Open from midday, Tuesday through to Sunday, each six-course menu will be available from noon to night. 6 course tasting menu is £28 and wine pairings an additional £25 in both cities. As ever, there is a vegetarian alternative available for every course, as well as snack sides. 
 
Nico added:
 
“The idea to create a Wonka themed menu originated from my own personal memories of the movie and if you need a little refresher, Six by Nico are delighted invite you to try all kinds of out-of-the-box dishes on this fun and imaginative new menu.”
