Six by Nico in Edinburgh have announced their latest theme, and it’s set to take you right back to your younger years.

In the latest offering, Chef Nico Simeone has created a menu filled with fun, laughter and memories, as he has recreated dishes inspired by memories of childhood.

Everyone seems to have a favourite or, in some cases, a most hated dish with which they can recall from childhood. And from Tuesday 11th December – Sunday 19th January 2019 guests will be invited to relive these memories on a trip down memory lane at the two Six by Nico restaurants in Glasgow and Edinburgh.

Following on from the success of the Glasgow restaurants inaugural ‘Childhood’ tasting menu in 2017, the team have created the ‘Childhood 2.0’ menu that ties us to our past, our heritage, and our memories.

Diners will instantly be transported back to their grandmother’s kitchen, their school canteen or their first overseas family holiday.

Chef Nico Simeone said: “Reliving those fond childhood memories is exactly what we aim to do for all our guests with our ‘Childhood 2.0’ tasting menu.

“There are some food that, even how many years have passed, embody childhood for us and almost everyone has childhood memories of family meals, ranging from holiday gatherings to the ordinary breakfasts, lunches, and dinners – we eat to help re-create that.”
