What: Six by Nico Canary Wharf
In a nutshell: Tasting menus in the east
Summing it all up: This is the second Six by Nico restaurant to arrive in London. It's all about their six-course tasting menu, which changes (never to be repeated) every six weeks.
The Fitzrovia opening of Six by Nico must have gone well, as the team behind that are getting ready to open a second London restaurant, making it the group's eighth in total.
If you're unfamiliar with the concept, launched by Scottish chef Nico Simeone, it's all about the number six. There's a single six-course tasting menu that changes every six weeks and it's keenly priced too, at £37. Think of it as a halfway house between something more casual and fine dining. Each menu has a theme and, as a reference, here's a look at the current Circus-based menu:
WAFFLES & ICE CREAM - Chicken Liver Parfait, Compressed Peach, Potato Crisp
CANDY BUTCHERS - Beef Tartare, Burger Sauce, Aged Parmesan, Pickled Cucumber
THE ILLUSIONIST - Chicken Ballotine, Crushed Artichoke, Brown Shrimp, Caper & Raisin Puree
A-CRAB-ATICS - Sole, Baby Courgette, Bergamot Gel, Crab Tortellini & Bisque
THE GREATEST SHOW - Smoked Duck Breast, Wild Garlic, Black Truffle Emulsion, Duck Leg Ragout
THE GRAND FINALE - Peanut Butter Parfait, Rhubarb Compote, Blood Orange, Candy Floss
The new restaurant seats 100 and 30 of those will be on the outside terrace, so that's much larger than Fitzrovia. On top of that, the Canary Wharf restaurant will also have its own bar area. We were impressed with the Fitzrovia branch, so this should be worth a look.
